IMS Israel Good Deeds Day March 2016

Continuing our tradition, IMS reached out to "Kanaf Shel Ahava", a home and school that serves as a therapeutic framework for 20 marginalized teens. Working with the teens and staff, we spruced up the garden. Together, we built a bench from recycled materials and installed a hammock, creating a chill-out corner. The club room was refurbished with a coat of fresh paint, new couches and wall stickers. We took a break to enjoy the lunch that we prepared together with the home's lovely kitchen staff. At the end of the day we toured the farm and learned about the teens' rehabilitation process.
