BEIT HALOCHEM UK
Beit Halochem, meaning “House of Warriors”, was established to provide Israeli wounded veterans with a rehabilitative infrastructure, where they receive respite and the opportunity to regain the dignity and quality of life they deserve.
Today, 51,000 wounded veterans and victims of terror are given a new lease of life in the four Beit Halochem centres, in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa and Beersheba. With help from supporters around the world, a fifth and final rehabilitation centre is being constructed in Ashdod.
The centres provide a blend of exceptional rehabilitative services, including physiotherapy, hydrotherapy and chiropractic treatments, conducted alongside social and specialised sport options, educational programmes and scholarships.
Each centre offers a wide choice of physical, social and creative activities, housing an auditorium, multi-purpose gym, classrooms, fitness rooms, occupational and physical therapy units, trauma therapy units, a cafeteria and a social wing.
As Israel continues to face its enemies inside and outside its borders and the number of wounded veterans continues to grow, the funding needs of the Beit Halochem centres increase. Beit Halochem relies heavily on its affiliated organisations, including Beit Halochem UK, to help it carry the burden of giving its members as normal a life as possible, which will enable them to continue on-going programmes, develop further initiatives and purchase muchneeded equipment for the centres. email@example.com | 020 8458 2455 bhuk.org | Registered charity 1146950
