Today, MIFGASH is providing treatment for a number of children with acute problems that are beyond standard developmental problems:

  • Down Syndrome
  • Tuberous Sclerosis
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Congenital Muscular Weakness
  • Prematurely born children, who need motor skills strengthening
  • 3P Deletion Congenital Syndrome
  • Children suffering additional serious syndromes

The need for emotional therapy has increased in the Gush Shiloh area due to the number of terror attacks in the area. It goes without saying that not only are family members affected by terror attacks, but also the wider circle of friends, neighbors and students.


The children treated in Mifgash for physical, motor, or language problems often have also developed insecurities and abnormal behaviors. These children hear ongoing reports and discussions in the news, which decreases their sense of security and increases their anxieties. Unquestionably, emotional therapy can release tensions and open channels of more appropriate and developed thought.


The cost of treatment is beyond the means of most families in the Gush Shiloh and Jordan Valley regions. As a result, children continue to suffer emotionally, sometimes to the point of inability to  continue schooling. Your help in this area is vital in our efforts to help the children.
