There are almost 200,000 children and youth in Israel with debilitating disabilities such as deafness, paralysis, or learning difficulties and need continuously ongoing medical treatment.
Every year approximately 300 babies are abandoned in the hospitals of Israel shortly after their birth. This happens because of different reasons: a problematic family background, medical problems of infants, abuse, drug addiction of mothers or other circumstances. But in all cases, the newborns are left alone in the hospitals without a warm hug, a happy song, a kind word or maternal care.
"Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry; And bring the homeless poor into
the house; When you see the naked, to cover him; And not to hide yourself from your
own flesh?“ (Isaiah 58:7)
