ALYN stands with hostages in Gaza

Dear Friends,
We need your help!!!

On Saturday, October 7, 2023, the Hamas terrorist organization invaded the sovereign territory of Israel and launched a barbaric attack and murderous rampage, targeting the civilian population and killing over 1400. During this heinous attack, at least 210 Israeli citizens as well as citizens of other nationalities, including babies, children, women, men, and the elderly, were abducted and forcibly taken to Gaza and are being held hostage. One of the kidnapped is Hersh Goldberg Polin, son of long time ALYN friend Jon Polin.

Videos filmed by the Hamas, and which are prolific on social media, show the cruel and inhumane treatment of these hostages, including beatings, torture, and rape.
Nonetheless, we soon realized that among the hostages there are also persons with disabilities, including children and elderly. As a rehabilitation center dedicated to children  with disabilities we have decided to raise the issue of people with disabilities among the hostages, as part of the effort to generate international pressure for the release of all the hostages.
How can you help?
Please do whatever you can to raise public awareness on the issue of the hostages and to keep it on the worldwide public agenda.

Additionally, you can reach out to relevant authorities, such as government officials (members of parliament, etc.), and ask them to make every effort to secure the release of the hostages.

Every passing day puts the well-being and lives of the hostages in danger.
Praying to bring them home….
