ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran
The Jewel of the Negev
The ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran Rehabilitation Village (formerly ALEH Negev-Nahalat Eran) was named in memory of Eran Almog, the late son of Didi and Major General (Res.) Doron Almog. Fueled by his love for Eran, who was born with severe autism and intellectual disabilities, Doron Almog guided the creation of an expansive residential and rehabilitative complex in Israel’s south that has become a home and family for more than 150 children and young adults with severe disabilities and complex medical conditions, and provides a host of rehabilitative solutions for individuals from all backgrounds and levels of need.
ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran provides a wide range of services, including residential care for people with multiple disabilities and complex medical conditions, an intensive care hospital wing for babies and adults, a para-medical center, hydrotherapy pool, special education school, green care farm, and a therapeutic horse stable and petting zoo.
As chairman of ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran, Doron Almog continues to lead and guide the village’s progress and advancement. As one of the founders of this unparalleled rehabilitative village and a recipient of the 2016 Israel Prize for lifetime achievement and contributions to society and the state, Doron stands as a symbol of disability care and inclusion who advances a crucial social message: “The strength of the human chain is only as strong as its weakest link.”
In this vein, ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran welcomes visitors and volunteers from all backgrounds and walks of life on a regular basis, including high-school students, IDF soldiers, white collar inmates participating in rehabilitation programs, high-tech company employees, Israeli security service personnel, retired senior citizens, and National Service and international volunteers.
