Tlamim - a therapeutic, experiential, and sports center with the help of animals

The Tlamim Center is a treatment center in Kibbutz Magal that has been operating for over three decades, on a large area of about 18 dunams, among the kibbutz fields. The center operates through special cooperation with the association "Misholim", with the help of a qualified, professional, and experienced team of guides and therapists, accompanied by a social worker and with the help of many volunteers.
