You Can Help the Disadvantaged in Israel

animal therapy emunahChildren at risk who have been through traumas at a tender age are generally frightened, withdrawn, uncommunicative, distant, uncooperative, and suffer from behavioral disorders. In some cases, they do not respond to conventional psychological treatment. In the course of these programs, we have seen the very same children become confident, open, communicative, cheerful, cooperative, and better adjusted.

Research studies have indicated a clear affinity between children’s relationships with animals and their character development. A child’s empathy with animals can be a model for relationships with people.

Contact with animals encourages our children to bring out positive and sometimes latent character traits such as responsibility and leadership, involvement and decision-making. Through contact with animals our children learn to cope with difficulties such as anxiety and fear, social problems, deprivation and rejection, violence and anger – conditions that stem from their unsteady relationships with their biological parents or their unstable environment.

As a result of participating in these programs, our children develop positive traits such as taking responsibility, caring for others, communications skills, social skills, and improved self-image, all of which are essential for overcoming childhood traumas, rehabilitation and restoration of their spiritual and emotional well-being.

Annual Cost of 2 Pet Therapies: $25,000
