Three months ago, a two year toddler was referred to us by the social welfare services. She was found abandoned: left alone in an empty street, covered in filth and suffering from shock. A doctor’s examination revealed that she was also a victim of physical abuse. After the physical exam, the toddler's parents - who had not noticed that she was missing - were found to both be drug addicts. The toddler was transferred to the dedicated care of Orr Shalom's professional staff, who placed her with a safe, loving family.

Established in 1980, Orr Shalom is Israel’s largest, oldest, and leading organization caring for abused children. We care for over 1,300 physically, emotionally, and/or sexually abused and severely neglected children ages 0-18 who have been removed from their homes by the welfare services. With over 37 years of hands-on experience, we remain committed to providing the vital emotional, psychological, and material support to help heal the most broken children of Israel.
