Misholim association

Since 2009, the association has been operating a therapeutic animal farm for people with special needs in collaboration with the Telim Center in Kibbutz Magal, through therapy with the help of a wide variety of animals. The activity is tailored to an audience with diverse special needs, victims of the security system and youth at risk, with an emphasis on a population with little ability.
