Rescue 24 abused boys – save their home from closure!

Orr Shalom’s Reut home cares for 24 boys, who have suffered the most extreme physical, emotional, and/or sexual abuse and neglect. Due to their traumatic life experiences they endure deep behavioral, learning, and psychiatric difficulties. Their vulnerability is so acute, that Reut is their last chance. No other program in Israel will welcome and care for such severe cases. Without Reut, these boys have nowhere else to go – they would end up on the street, in psychiatric wards or juvenile detention centers. Without Reut they have no other hope for a better future.

In 2010, the Ministry of Welfare decided to close down Reut because its facilities were cramped and dilapidated. Following a long battle, they finally allowed Orr Shalom to keep it open but only if we urgently renovate the entire facility.

We urgently need to raise $25,000 by 31 March 2012 for the first stage of renovations.

If we are unable to raise the money needed for the full renovations, Reut will shut down, and the boys will have nowhere to go. The work includes building a bomb shelter and totally refurbishing the living and sleeping quarters.

Fundraiser for Israeli Children by Orr Shalom

This month and next month there are two fund raising events by a non profit organization called Orr Shalom. The organization houses 1,300 of the approx. 8,000 children who find themselves without a home.

Orr Shalom was founded in 1980 with the intention of providing family structure and support to children who were removed from their home for reasons of abuse, abandonment and severe neglect.

The organization takes care of 1,300 children between the ages of 0 to 18 who were removed from their biological parents homes and are placed in one of several foster frameworks, all guided by the mission of providing a warm, supporting and loving environment for the child. Find out more about Orr Shalom and how you can help!

The two event posters are below. The first event is Machina – Unplugged and it takes place on May 19, 2009 at the Tel Aviv Harbour – Riding 3.
