Committed to providing ongoing financial support to the Center, empowering physically disabled Israeli children from all backgrounds to participate in physical and psychological rehabilitation through sports to attain the goal of leading productive and successful lives in Israeli society. The spirit and motivation of sport is used to help guide the disabled from a state of helplessness to productive, fulfilling lives. Sports activities contribute more to the confidence, morale, and self-image of the disabled than any other form of rehabilitation. For the thousands of children that have benefitted from ISCD, the Center's sports activities have proven to prolong life expectancy of the seriously disabled. Today, more than 2500 kids and adults participate in 20 different sports activities without discrimination of religion, race, or ethnicity. In the last several years the Center has grown more visible around the U.S. and abroad.
