It is the duty of the government to assist Akim, President Moshe Katsav said on Thursday as he called on the public to give generously to the organization that cares for youngsters and adults with special needs deriving from mental disabilities and other developmental disorders. Katsav and his wife Gila launched the current Akim fund-raising drive at Beit Hanassi, as they do each year, and gave the first donation to this year's campaign.
