El Salvador adopts Yad Sarah Model

Wednesday, December 13, 2006 |  by Staff Writer
El Salvador is among the first of Latin American countries to adopt the Israeli model of “Yad Sarah” for its citizens. Yad Sarah is an Israeli network of volunteers aiding disabled, elderly, and housebound people aimed at making home care possible.

The first branch of Yad Sarah Latin America is slated to open next year in San Salvador, the capital of El Salvador.

It was decided after an initial visit of the ambassador of El Salvador to Yad Sarah. The ambassador simply loved the institution and decided to present it to the wife of the president of El Salvador who is responsible treating the disabled in the country. The ambassador said if this will succeed Yad Sarah will go into full operation. When he was asked how one is able to characterize Israelis, he answered, “Yad Sarah.”
