With deep sorrow, the ADI family mourns the passing of our dear friend, 𝗟𝗶𝗹𝘆 𝗦𝗮𝗳𝗿𝗮 a”h, a true woman of valor and an advocate for people with disabilities, who helped give a voice to those who could not speak for themselves.
Lily’s benevolent support of ADI residential and rehabilitation centers in Jerusalem and the Negev enabled residents, students and outpatients to receive quality care in enhanced surroundings at a level consistent with Lily’s high standards.
Lily and her late husband Edmond took great interest in developing rehabilitation services in southern Israel. The establishment of the Hydrotherapy Center and the Rehabilitation Center at ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran were due to their foresight and generosity.
At the ADI Jerusalem Center, Lily took particular interest in providing early intervention and rehabilitation services to babies and toddlers with severe disabilities. Thanks to the generous support of the Edmond J. Safra Foundation, ADI Jerusalem established a modern Rehabilitative Daycare Center with an attractive outdoor play area for dozens of children from the community.
The Edmond J. Safra Foundation also supported ADI’s pioneering high dependency hospital wings in both Jerusalem and the Negev, where residents with complex disabilities and serious medical conditions receive the supportive and medical care they need in a quality rehabilitative and homelike environment.
Thanks to Lily’s caring and generous outlook, hundreds of ADI residents and special education students continue to live happy, rewarding and enriching lives.
We extend our deepest condolences to Lily’s children, Eduardo, Adriana and Carlos, and the entire extended family. May her many good deeds stand as a merit for her and her loved ones.
May you be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
