Eilat Children, Elders and Soldiers

Retirees interaction with soldiers – The army has a project for interaction between elderly in Eilat and soldiers at nearby bases. Each day 8 retirees are taken by a minibus to a base where they talk to the soldiers, help them with little things like sewing buttons on uniforms, etc. and they share a lunch at the base with the soldiers. It’s a very successful project, partly because the elderly and the soldiers enjoy each others’ company.

Financial assistance to elderly dental care – Many elderly Ethiopians suffer from dental problems. The minimal health care which the needy elderly receive covers only the extraction of bad teeth, but not the replacement. We wish to begin assisting the elderly men and women with replacement of bad teeth, which would help their health and nutrition.
