We believe that the key to building Israel’s future is through the support and development of its women and children. By investing in schools, daycares, shelters, and other support systems, we are creating the circumstances under which Israeli women and children can thrive. Our partnerships with Assaf Harofeh Medical Center and Hadassah Hospital ensure that Israel remains on the cutting-edge of scientific and medical advancement.
