The Helmsley Charitable Trust announced $1.75 million in grants to help disabled children and adults in Israel.

Shalva, The Association for Mentally and Physically Challenged Children in Israel received $1m., and Beit Halochem-Tel Aviv, which provides rehabilitation services to disabled veterans, received $750,000.

Shalva’s funding is for a dining hall and events floor in the organization’s new National Children’s Center located in Jerusalem. Beit- Halochem’s grant will be used toward a creation of a professional hydrotherapy facility and renovations to its pool facilities.

Since the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust began awarding grants to Israel in 2009, more than $112 million has been committed to a wide range of charitable organizations.

“These two grants demonstrate our belief that community-based health care services best serve the needs of families and children,” said Helmsley trustee Sandor Frankel.
