An emergency services update: Being in a war


Registered UK Charity 1164793
Official Address: The Limes, 1339 High Road, Whetstone, London N20 9HR

Malki Foundation UK (registered in the United Kingdom as a charity - number 1164793) invites you to take part in our emergency services update focusing on the families we serve in Israel’s southern border communities.

Thursday, October 26, 2023
Starting at 7:45 pm UK time

  • Children with disabilities
  • The families who love them
  • Being in a war

Founded in Israel in 2001, the Malki Foundation undertook the mission of empowering and helping families of children with extreme special needs in concrete ways. In the years since then, more than 3,000 families from Israel’s Christian, Druze, Muslim and Jewish populations have benefited from our programs.

The war that erupted on Shabbat, October 7, 2023, has upended Israel and the region, as well as Israeli families from every part of the socio-demographic spectrum. The work of the Malki Foundation is suddenly more challenging and dramatically more relevant. How we are now intervening to help families in Israel’s periphery, especially the south, is an absorbing narrative we believe you will want to know about.

Via Zoom from London, Geoffrey Hartnell, the chair of Malki Foundation UK’s board of trustees will lead a conversation with two guests in Israel: Arnold Roth, who, with his wife Frimet founded the Malki Foundation and serves as its honorary chair, and Ely Cohen, who directs Malki Foundation’s activities from Jerusalem.

On the agenda:
  • The difficulties the Malki Foundation faces following the horrendous attack on Israel by Hamas
  • The impact on families and children with severe disabilities and the essential therapies we deliver
  • How in these new and difficult conditions we aim to help these families get through the trauma.
You are invited to join the conversation! Click the “I will be attending” button below to reserve your place in this Zoom live event.
