A Message from our CEO 

Hello everyone,

Jordan River Village continues to welcome and accommodate sick children to the Village and expand its activities with other entities. 

Since the beginning of the year, the Village has hosted more than 500 children and teens from different parts of the country as well as children from the Palestinian Authority.

In 2014 we hosted 41 sessions at the Village with about 1674 children and teens from different parts of the country as well as children from the Palestinian Authority, in addition to the children's families.

Our handicap accessible heated swimming pool was utilized with great success during the winter months and  the children are now enjoying it during the hot summer.

Over the days preparations continue for the summer sessions in which we will host children with diseases such as vision and hearing impairments, hemophilia, epilepsy, and other neurological conditions.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the "Jordan River Village team", our wonderful volunteers, the great youngsters of the "Shnat Sherut" (year of community service between graduation and the army) and of course to all the members of the Board that support and assist us – all for the benefit of the amazing children.

Wishing us all continued achievements,


Yuval Halamish
