Perach Zahav Matanel

This project aims to connect between younger and senior populations in Arad and to assist older Arad residents to integrate into community activities. In the framework of this project we seek to connect young adults and students with seniors. The young person accompanies the elder doing daily activities and becomes a friend, a listening ear, and is at the senior’s side during hard times, as well as the good. A relationship between the parties forms that is beneficial for both.
