The WIZO Hadassim youth village, north of Tel Aviv, absorbed 150 children from northern Israel, including 40 autistic children.
Hadassim appeals to the public to donate diapers, mineral water, pillows, games, movies, TVs and more. According to general manager Ze'ev Twito, "the children arrived in a severe and depressed state. Efforts are being made to cheer them up." (Ra'anan Ben-Tsur)
