Ahuva was born with Down’s syndrome and has severe mental and physical delays.
Her parents knew she needed special therapies in order to help her develop, but the only clinic with infant therapists was in a distant city, and the family doesn’t have a car or the funds to get there. As a result, Ahuva did not receive any treatments.
That was until they contacted the Malki Foundation, which covered and continues to cover 100% of the costs of a specialized therapist to come to their house and work with Ahuva. With the therapist’s help, Ahuva was able to walk at 2 years old and now her mother reports that “Thanks to the intensive work with the therapist [made possible by funds from Keren Malki] next school year Ahuva will be mainstreamed [go to a regular pre-school]”.
