The Ministry of Welfare and Social Services

The Ministry of Welfare and Social Services has supported ILAN and closely followed its activities throughout the years. The ministry underwrites many of the rehabilitation and welfare activities carried out in ILAN's day centers, summer camps, enrichment centers, residential hostels, and other facilities.

Senior ministry administrators visit ILAN's facilities from time to time to observe and audit ILAN's rehabilitation projects and innovations in rehabilitation, sports, and welfare, and to verify that ILAN meets all required governmental standards. Minister of Welfare Yitzhak Herzog; director general of the ministry, Nachum Itzkovitz; director of the rehabilitation department, Dr. Shlomo Elyashar; and the entire ministry staff collaborate with ILAN in its efforts to provide assistance and rehabilitation services to the disabled population of Israel.
