Rescue 24 abused boys - save their home from closure!

Orr Shalom’s Reut home cares for 24 boys, who have suffered the most extreme physical, emotional, and/or sexual abuse and neglect. Due to their traumatic life experiences they endure deep behavioral, learning, and psychiatric difficulties. Their vulnerability is so acute, that Reut is their last chance. No other program in Israel will welcome and care for such severe cases. Without Reut, these boys have nowhere else to go - they would end up on the street, in psychiatric wards or juvenile detention centers. Without Reut they have no other hope for a better future.

In 2010, the Ministry of Welfare decided to close down Reut because its facilities were cramped and dilapidated. Following a long battle, they finally allowed Orr Shalom to keep it open but only if we urgently renovate the entire facility.

We urgently need to raise $25,000 by 31 March 2012 for the first stage of renovations.

If we are unable to raise the money needed for the full renovations, Reut will shut down, and the boys will have nowhere to go. The work includes building a bomb shelter and totally refurbishing the living and sleeping quarters.

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...
