The Jerusalem branch of "Simcha Layeled" runs programs for childrens who come from Jerusalem and many surrounding areas, such as Gush Etzion, Ma'ale Edomim, Beit Shemesh and Modi'in.
The big brother/sister program includes six groups, three boy groups and three for girls, divided according to age, includes about 70 children of Jerusalem and many surrounding areas.
Each group has a coordinator and a National Service young woman who are in charge of birthday parties, holiday celebrations, group excursions, home visits and more.
Our stuff also includes a social worker in the branch, as well as 6 coordinators.
There are four National Service young women who work in the hospitals in Jerusalem: Hadassah Ein Kerem, Shaare Zedek, Alyn and Haddash Mt. Scopus, coordinating a wide range of programs for hundreds of disabled and seriously ill children each week.
Activities include holiday celebrations, computer education/games, parties, art & crafts and reading.
Our children face many complex daily challenges, and that is why we take them on the most exciting and memorable two-days trip in Northern Israel that includes amusement parks, boating, wagon rides and other attractions, in addition to treating them to various one-day trips to the zoo, the Safari and on jeep tours.
The Jerusalem branch includes an activity club that operates once a week, offering table games, video games, art & crafts, and other activities that focus on the various holidays of the year. The club enables each child to spend time outside of his/her home with his/her mentor, and also allows the families several hours of rest and from their very hectic schedule.
