As a result of the low socio-economic background of a large number of the impaired people who are taken care of by ILAN ,combined to the difficult economic situation in Israel ,The Personal Aid Program assists individuals and their families to surmount some of the financial difficulties that the disability imposes on them personally and on their entire family. The prices of motorized wheelchairs, stabilizing, and walking frames etc. is very high and the families need help.

The amount of assistance given to any individual is up to 1600$ for a year. In special cases, a higher grant is awarded but in no case does ILAN cover 100% of the costs. The family is asked to contribute to the cost of purchase.
