Zeevi - From Candle Making to Carpentry

Happy Zeevi was Beit Uri’s poster boy making candles for many, many years. During the course of the GlobalGiving campaign our popular candle-maker, one of over a hundred residents, developed signs of early dementia, often looking lost and forlorn, unable to remember how to make candles, losing all desire to leave his residential home and walk out into the spacious green areas. The staff decided a change in jobs would be a possible trigger and it was agreed to move him to the carpentry workshop. This has proved a positive step and although often confused and sad, he arrives every day and on many occasions can be found smiling with a saw in his hand, eager to carve out a creation in this bustling carpentry environment.

Your donations have contributed towards the purchase of a multi-function, much-needed combiner tool which now enables all the carpentry participants to cut, feed wood, trim boards, design patterns and make holes or special shapes to perfect the many pieces of furniture produced - beds, tables and doors as well as household items for sale in the in-house gallery.

Thanks for helping start the New Year with the purchase of a piece of fine machine technology. Come and visit the bustling carpentry corner in Beit Uri and see for yourselves how you have made a difference in the lives of residents in this very special home !
