Mission & Goals:
Our mission is to support Israel's premier rehabilitation center for physically disabled children, adolescents and young adults. ALYN is the perfect acronym in Hebrew and English: Aguda L’ezrat Yeladim Nachim (Organization to Help Disabled Children) and All the Love You Need. ALYN Hospital combines expertise and love so each patient and family can meet the challenges of living with disabilities and achieve the highest possible level of mobility and independence.
How your contribution helps:
Doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers, psychologists and volunteers at ALYN all combine expertise with love and treat families, not just individual children. Physical challenges are viewed as just that – challenges - and NOT obstacles to living mobile, independent lives. Staff members work tirelessly to empower patients to reach their highest possible levels of function and mobility. As a private nonprofit hospital, ALYN receives no automatic government funding and for every dollar spent on care there is a shortfall of at least 30¢ which grows to a minimum of $3,000,000 every year. This shortfall is funded through the generosity of individuals, federations and foundations.
