Love, hope, Malki

Malka Chana Roth Z"L in honor of whose tragically short life the Malki Foundation was established in 2001 knew the importance of family support for a child with disabilities. 

In a letter sent to the American magazine Exceptional Parent when Malki was just eleven years old, and published in its July 1997 edition, she wrote about her little sister:
“Haya-Elisheva has quite a lot of problems. She has Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and is severely mentally retarded. She is a lovely sister. I love reading stories to her and cuddling up with her. Although she does not respond on the outside, I know she is responding on the inside”.
This special sibling love and connection was a trait that exemplified Malki and a reason that the foundation exists in her memory. 

Every day we work to bring honor to Malki’s memory by staying true to our mission of helping children with special needs and empowering their families.
