Rights & Services
ILAN aims to assist in the welfare, education and rehabilitation of disabled children until adult age and complete rehabilitation. Our aims include:
1. Integrating each disabled person in a suitable educational, occupational or residential framework. (See ILAN Institutions)
2. Integrating the disabled in sports activities at the ILAN Sports Centers.
3. Assisting and supporting a range of sports and social activities, such as, social clubs, hobbies and socio-cultural past-times.
4. Carrying out annual summer camps for disabled children at kibbutzim and other types of communities in Israel.
5. Providing transport services to activities and services in disabled-accessible vehicles.
6. Providing individual assistance through the Assistance Committee for the purchase of essential rehabilitation equipment, especially adapted computers and for financing paramedical treatments.
ILAN is a non-profit organization, based on volunteer work. Our existence relies on private contributions. ILAN's ability to carry out the above aims and extend its action depends both on its budgetary limitations and the readiness or financial capacity of those who receive assistance to contribute to part of the costs.
