ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran Impact Report: Operation Iron Swords

In thanks and appreciation to our partners for supporting our dedicated staff

Since the beginning of Operation Iron Swords, ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran has been on the front lines, caring for our village residents and rehabilitation inpatients and also assisting the war efforts locally and nationally. Thanks to generous support from foundations and individuals around the world – including JNF-USA, Jewish Federations of Canada-UIA, Jewish Federations of North America, Belgium Friends of ADI, C4i, the Helmsley Trust, and more – we have been able to provide support for our dedicated staff members, volunteers, and reserve soldiers standing guard at ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran, as well as enhance our security systems and equip our new emergency trauma rehabilitation ward.

At ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran, our dedicated and highly skilled professional staff and volunteers are the key to our continued success, and our appointed IDF guardians are crucial to the safety of the hundreds of individuals in the village. Thanks to our loyal partnerships, we have been able to show these passionate and compassionate women and men how much they are valued and appreciated, keeping their morale high and ensuring the best possible care for our residents and rehabilitation inpatients.

During this challenging period, we are giving back to our employees who have been going beyond by providing them with monetary support, daily meals and shelter, tokens of appreciation, private transportation, childcare services, care packages and emotional support. We are providing individual and group therapy sessions, as well as activities to help them heal their bodies and minds, including yoga, dance, therapeutic gardening, medical clowns, lectures and more.

In addition, we have increased security and protective systems throughout the village, including additional cameras, outdoor lighting, and a more secure fence. Arrangements for additional security measures are underway.

At the same time, we are preparing to open a new rehabilitation ward. Currently, the Kaylie Rehabilitation Medical Center consists of two 36-bed wards – neurological and orthopedic rehabilitation wards. The new ward, fortified to withstand a rocket barrage, will add an additional 36 beds to the hospital and bring its capacity to 108 beds. This project is scheduled for completion by December 2024.

In the meantime, ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran has designated a safe space for an emergency trauma rehabilitation ward for 28 patients. Newly equipped with cutting-edge equipment, the ward has begun accepting wounded IDF soldiers and civilians. These patients will receive quality inpatient rehabilitation in our state-of-the-art facility close to their families and communities in the south.

Our partners’ generous support has helped us provide:

  • 9,000+ meals for staff and volunteers
  • 1,000+ gift packages and treats for staff members and soldiers
  • 170 residents and 70 rehabilitation patients with a safe and secure rehabilitative haven
  • 80 individual and group therapy sessions
  • 28 new rehabilitative hospital beds and accompanying medical/paramedical equipment
  • 15 staff members’ children with a framework for daycare services
  • 5 fully furnished homes for displaced staff members and their families
  • 35 emergency assistance aid grants
  • 11 emergency grants to staff suffering the loss of a loved one
  • $100,000+ in bonuses to staff working overtime

Now, more than ever, is the time to come together as one. Thanks to our supporters, we have been able to continue to offer the best care to our residents, rehabilitative inpatients, staff, and soldiers during this challenging time, giving them a taste of normalcy and restoring their hope throughout Israel’s time of need. Together, we can bring hope, comfort and renewed commitment to the people of the south

We need your support!
