Health and Welfare

Over the years, the Clore Foundation has partnered central and local government, as well as non-profit organisations, in a variety of programmes and projects directed toward enhancing health and welfare provision within the community. Among the most significant of these are the Sir Charles Clore Hospital Tower at the Sheba Medical Centre, Tel Hashomer; the Charles Clore Hostel for cancer patients in Givatayim; the Suzy Eban oncology unit at the Sieff Hospital in Safed; a floor at the cardiac rehabilitation department in the Sheba Medical Centre, Tel Hashomer; the establishment of a molecular biology unit at Ichilov Hospital, Tel Aviv; and the construction of the Clore School for Special Education in Beersheva. Many other projects, smaller in scope, have also served to significantly improve the circumstances of the sick, the elderly, the disabled, and the less fortunate in society. Over the past decade, these include:

  • Assistance to the elderly: Construction of a Home for the Elderly in Upper Nazareth support for those suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Support for hospice services.
  • Help for people with disabilities: Improving physical conditions in homes for the mentally handicapped; provision of services for the mentally handicapped; riding therapy for disabled children; gardening therapy for the injured and disabled;computers for disabled children; promoting the rights of the disabled.
  • Improving the physical conditions and facilities for children in youth villages.
  • Support for women in distress and for women’s empowerment.
