Your donation is NOW worth DOUBLE!!! Our American Friends of Orr Shalom have generously agreed to MATCH every donation - up to $10,000, until the end of July 2012...
Today, your gift will go TWICE as far!!!

We need your help to save 24 abused boys' home from closure.

In our first campaign we raised almost $10,000 towards a new kitchen. Many of you helped to bring this about. We visited last week and saw for ourselves the work that had been done and are excited that the boys will now enjoy meat meals as well !!

We need to complete stage 2 of the renovations to keep Reut open. This will renovate and refurbish the boys' bedrooms and the living quarters. Please help us raise $25,000.

Without Reut, these 24 boys have nowhere to go. They are such extreme cases that no other framework in Israel will care for them. Reut’s 24 boys have suffered severe abuse, neglect and tragedy and endure deep behavioral, learning and psychiatric difficulties. Without Reut they would be on the street or locked up in psychiatric wards or juvenile detention centers.

These 24 boys have suffered enough and need your help now!

Meet the Reut boys

Eliav, nine, has lived in Orr Shalom’s Reut Home for Boys for three years. Aged six, he was found scavenging for food on the Tel Aviv streets, at night. His mother, a victim of violence traumatized from life experiences, could not look after him. Home was the old Tel Aviv Central Bus Station. When Eliav arrived at Orr Shalom, he had suffered severe neglect. He did not speak, his clothes and body were dirty, and he had animal-like behavior.

Today, Eliav is an independent, sociable boy who has learnt basic life skills. He built up strong relationships in Reut, and can communicate through speech. His mother regularly visits him and the staff is helping them forge a positive relationship

Reut believed in Eliav and changed his life. Help Eliav and 23 boys like him...

Orr Shalom for Israel's Children and Youth at-Risk

Orr Shalom is Israel's largest non-profit organization that rescues children from all sectors of Israeli society, who have been removed from their homes by the social welfare services following severe abuse, neglect and tragedy. By providing safe, loving homes and material, psychological and educational support, Orr Shalom enables the children in its care to break the cycle of violence, overcome their pasts and prepare for life as independent adults. Orr Shalom cares for 1,300 children, aged newborn till 18+, in a number of programs across Israel from Haifa to Eilat
