- See photos of one-day outing for children with special needs to a sheltered bowling alley in Ashkelon and children with special needs receiving activity kits distributed by JDC. These activities were organized by Ashalim's local All in the Family centers for families with children with special needs.
- The Ministry of Social Affairs and Social Services and the Home Front Command have requested that JDC, in collaboration with The Institute for Cognitive Accessibility, develop simplified versions of instructions and informative documents for times of emergency. These documents will be available in digital format on the relevant websites and distributed by professionals working with people with cognitive disabilities.
