AMERICAN FRIENDS OF THE ISRAEL SPORT CENTER FOR THE DISABLED
The Israel Sport Center for the Disabled is one of the world pioneers in the field of sports rehabilitation. The Center opened its gates in 1960 and specializes in the physical and psychological rehabilitation of children and youth. Sports activities contribute to confidence, morale, and self-image more than any other form of rehabilitation. For more than 50 years, the Center’s sports activities have proven to prolong life expectancy of the seriously disabled. Today, more than 3,000 children and adults participate in 20 different sporting activities without discrimination of religion, race, or ethnicity.
The Vanity Project and AFISCD began collaborating in 2012 to raise funds and bring awareness to the cause of sports rehabilitation.
