News of the month:

Since January 2023, our organization has been a member of the Protection Cluster, and since April we have been integrated into the nationwide reporting system for charitable organizations operating under general protection and children protection.
  • We launched weekly robotics classes for children in our shelter (once a week). So far, it only works for children living in our shelter, but over time we plan to increase the number of students — photos.
  • Together with NRC, they conducted trainings for shelter residents on compensation for loss of property.
  • We spent the first matinee in our mini-garden at the Dream Center — photos.
