CANCELLED!
Regrettably, the organizers of the Adullam Night 5/10k Run for Orr Shalom's children have decided to cancel the run which had been re-scheduled for 9 September 2014.

Due to the difficult security situation in Israel this summer, the Adullam Run which had been originally organized for August was postponed. However, because of increasing logistical issues associated with the rescheduling, the organizers have now decided to cancel this event.

Although disappointed by this news, we remain extremely grateful for your support - both to those who intended to run on our behalf, and those who donated in support of our runners. Thank you very much.

As you know, all donations were directed towards our Emergency Safe Haven Camp this summer. The Safe Haven provides a vital refuge for our most at-risk children, during four vacation periods each year. While the majority of our children are able to return to their biological families for valuable reconciliation time, others are not - it is simply too unsafe.

Furthermore, due to the ongoing conflict, we urgently expanded the camp this August to include additional children from Ashkelon and Beersheva who were unable to spend this period with their biological or host families as they usually do. Either their families lived in exceptionally high-risk areas surrounding the Gaza border or their biological families were simply too unstable to care for their children in those challenging, unpredictable times.

We hope you still wish to support this important program, however, please be in touch with tamarl@orr-shalom.co.il if you would like your donation refunded.

Thank you again and our sincere apologies - we look forward to running together in the future.

Sarit*, aged 16, was removed from her home after her father killed her mother and was subsequently imprisoned for life.  Three years ago she came to live in one of our family group homes and has since attended the Safe Haven four times a year, every year.  Sarit is totally alone in the world with no family network.  Vacation time is particularly difficult for her as she watches her school friends spend time with their families and enjoy outings and trips.  Sarit has no place to go.  It is essential that we continue to provide her with a safe haven during school vacations.

Orr Shalom for Israel's Children-at-Risk

Orr Shalom rescues and cares for Israel’s children who have been removed from their homes by the social welfare services, having suffered severe abuse and/or neglect, or because they have been abandoned by their parents or suffered a familial tragedy.

We care for 1,300 children from birth to 18+ years from all sectors of Israeli society, in a variety of frameworks including foster care (regular, therapeutic and emergency), family group homes, and closed intensive therapeutic homes.
