In response to the attacks on October 7, ALYN Hospital, through the innovative PELE track (PELE – Personalized Equipment Leading to Empowerment) of the hospital’s Innovation Space has been steadfast in its commitment to helping survivors of the tragedy rebuild their lives.
With the outbreak of war and the evacuation of civilians from their homes, PELE has gone into action to provide critical assistive technology solutions to help children with disabilities who are in temporary housing so that they can be equipped to adapt in this new reality. These solutions aim to increase their independence and ensure that they can continue to grow and develop even in these chaotic times.
ALYN and PELE are also creating adaptive solutions for soldiers and young adults in rehabilitation facilities who have suffered injuries in the war. Furthermore, ALYN has set up a counseling helpline for remote assistance, staffed by occupational therapists, physiotherapists and speech therapists to provide guidance and counseling for parents and caregivers.
While our sorrow seems to know no bounds, the work of ALYN and PELE coupled with the support of our donors are rays of light amongst the darkness. ALYN’s mission to provide our patients with independence and mobility and the best possible chance for recovery continues. Every patient who is given the gift of independence and mobility knows that we all must carry the hope that is the essence of Hannukah.
Help us spread light and joy by donating to ALYN Hospital and the work of PELE.
Wishing you a bright Hannukah.
