I just wanted to express in writing my deep admiration of the amazing woman on your Ezer Mizion Advocacy Unit staff named Tovi.
Today was the day of my appeal for eligibility for a stipend for my disabled son. I was so nervous. Everything depended on the outcome of this appeal.
Like an angel from Heaven, Tovi’s number appeared on my cell phone screen. She called to prepare me and to give me the emotional support that I needed to present my case well. The instructions she gave me proved to be extremely effective!!! Continue reading A Letter Meant for You, Our Dear Friends and Supporters

We want to thank Ezer Mizion from the bottom of our heart for their counseling and guidance on the subject of entitlement for a child disability allotment from Bituach Leumi.

Assistance to the Public in Obtaining Information about Entitlements at Bituach Leumi for Disabled Children
One of our children has a medical problem we are dealing with. When we submitted a request to Bituach Leumi for a Disability Allotment, as rightfully provided by law, we were issued a flat refusal. We heard that there are companies who help people like us actualize entitlements and take a hefty percentage in return.
At the last minute, before we turned to one of these companies, we found out that Ezer Mizion runs an Advocacy Unit that serves parents of children under age 18, where they provide assistance at no cost (tel. 073-395-6703).
We called them and were received graciously. They guided us, step by step, telling us exactly what to do, and thanks to their counsel. I am glad to share with you that we have started receiving an allotment for 100% disability at Bituach Leumi. Not only that – after being advised by Ezer Mizion to submit another request, we actually received this amount retroactively for a year. Continue reading When an Advocate is Needed
