A 16-km walk along the beautiful Nahal Alexander nature reserve, sponsored by more than 60 supporters of Chi.L.D. (the Haifa Center for Children with Learning Disabilities) was an appropriate way of raising funds for a Nature and Nurture Therapy project. The sponsorships, most of them from English-speaking immigrants, will help to set up a therapeutic greenhouse and vegetable garden at the center in a high-density residential area in the Hadar neighborhood, and to enlarge the existing animal corner. Organized by volunteers Stuart and Hadassah Palmer and resource development coordinator Sharona Stanhill, the walk was guided by Zehava Litovsky, also a volunteer and an expert on nature and history. The Haifa Center was founded in 1990 by Dr. Jeremiah Lubasch, a family physician whose vision inspired a large team of volunteers and professionals to provide vital social services for the local community and an educational program serving more than 3,000 families. Most of the children come from large families in the lower socio-economic stratum. Last year's sponsored walk raised more than NIS 25,000. The money was used to equip a new special-education kindergarten at Chi.L.D. For more information on Chi.L.D: osharona@bezeqint.net
