About the project
The St. Vincent Home for Handicapped Children was founded in 1964 to care for 70 severely mentally and physically disabled children. The home is operated by the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, an international community based in Paris. The home operates the Ma’ayan (Spring) School on the home’s premises for children aged 3 and older.The Jerusalem Foundation has periodically provided support for the purchase of equipment, including beds, televisions, bicycles and computers, and has supported music lessons and other activities. In 1997, the Foundation provided strollers that were donated by a Palestinian-American, the Foundation’s first-ever Palestinian donor.
