Aleh Foundation helps provide accessibility for independence and helps transform the life of children and adults like YONA to be accessible to the disabled and physically challenged. The core of our success is the warm, personal relationship that develops between their caregivers and the children. After all, our loving, professional staff plays many roles in the lives of Aleh's children – family, teachers and friends.
