Summary

Beit Uri is an inclusive residential community for youth and adults with special needs from different religious and cultural backgrounds from all over Israel. In normal times our devoted staff and numerous volunteers from around the world strive to keep every resident healthy and engaged no matter how severe their disability. The Corona virus has made this all the more challenging.

Challenge

Since the onslaught of the virus Beit Uri has gone into 'Keep Beit Uri Corona Free' mode with residents and staff adjusting to this new reality. All foreign volunteers have left, greatly reducing the number of people caring for the residents. If staff or their family members contract the virus they must quarantine for two weeks. The new structure requires that Beit Uri urgently equips each of the 9 residential houses with their own PPE and therapeutic equipment.

Solution

By supplying sanitizing equipment to clean each of the residential buildings, masks and full sterile body suits for all staff and visiting parents, contagion can be avoided. Supplementary arts and crafts materials together with additional therapeutic equipment will enable the full time staff to fill long days with a variety of activities all based in the same buildings. Additional therapeutic hours are in demand to ensure that the residents continue to be occupied and active.

Long-Term Impact

By supporting the 'Keep Beit Uri Corona Free' campaign you can guarantee the health and physical protection of this entire special needs community. We need help to keep Beit Uri Corona Free !
