British Friends of ALEH mark the 2019 International Day of Persons with Disabilities
Over 40 guests attended ALEH’s Empower Your Health morning and lunch to mark the 2019 International Day of Persons with Disabilities and to support the severely disabled children of ALEH in Israel. Nutritional therapist, Orley Kutner, provided tips for healthy eating and well-being and shared her delicious and healthy recipes, which participants later enjoyed over lunch. Liron Rosiner-Reshef, the Director of the British Friends of ALEH, presented the revolutionary work of ALEH which transforms the lives of over 750 of the most vulnerable children in Israel through its empowering approach to look for the children’s abilities within their disabilities.
Liron mentioned that without the support of ALEH, most of these children would be forced to spend their lives in a hospital bed. ALEH allows them to reach their fullest potential, and against all odds to reach milestones well beyond their initial prognosis. ALEH also leads the charge for acceptance and inclusion of people with disabilities through its ‘Tikkun Olam’ programmes around the world.
The event was a great success with over £4,000 raised towards ALEH’s new and improved Nutrition & Healthy Eating Programme. Guests said how impressed and touched they were by the warmth and professional services provided by ALEH at its four residential centres around Israel, and how much they enjoyed the morning. The event was generously hosted at the home of Mrs Tracy Jacob.
