Changing Children’s Lives
When you enter Neve Hanna, it is impossible not to fall in love. It is a magical children’s home located in Kiryat Gat. Visitors to Neve Hanna Children’s Home often note the care and attention given to each child, the recognition of individual needs and challenges, and the abundance of smiling faces.
For over 40 years, Neve Hanna Children’s Home has provided a loving home for children from distressed family circumstances in the south of Israel. They are the children of Russian, Ethiopian, Middle Eastern immigrants and native-born Israelis. By providing a nurturing and supportive family environment, Neve Hanna offers these young people the chance to grow beyond the circumstances from which they emerged.
Neve Hanna Children’s Home strives to meet all the physical, emotional, mental and educational needs of its children by enriching them with a wide variety of individualized therapeutic programs, projects and extracurricular activities–thus providing a nurturing and supportive family environment.
Play therapy, animal and riding therapy as well as art therapy enable children to deal with events and to cope with fears and conflicts that are often impossible to talk about and to put into words. Explore and learn about our therapeutic programs, leisure time activities and cultural enrichment. Neve Hanna Children’s Home is changing children’s lives.
Buy a Book, Build a Library!
Give the gift of books.
When you open a book, you open the world.
We are raising money to buy 1,000 books for the library being built at Neve Hanna Children’s Home. The books that will be chosen thanks to your donations — may inspire them to pursue studies in biology, education, medicine, astronomy and myriad other subjects, and to continue learning at the universal level. A book that inspires a Neve Hanna child to become the next astronaut or physician, novelist or painter, teacher or social worker, could be one that you buy and donate. By giving the gift of books, YOU help make a difference in the lives of our children.
