It's hard to believe that another calendar year is coming to a close. As we bid farewell to 2021, and gird ourselves for the next wave of Corona, I can't help but take pride in our staff and students, and all that we have accomplished together over the past year.
Despite the global pandemic, Keren Or remained in session for more than 2e0 in-person school days, and provided more than 10,000 hours of therapy to our students. With your help, we provided more than 1800 hours of hydrotherapy, and more than 69,000 hours of after-school care. During the afternoon, we provided hydrotherapy groups, as well as gardening, art, music, and pet activities for our students, while giving parents time to work or care for their other children. Thanks to you, we held zoom support groups for three different parental cohorts, coordinated dental cleanings and care for our students, purchased therapeutic equipment worth tens of thousands of dollars, and so much more. I feel humbled and blessed.
In this edition of Keren Or HighLIGHTS, you'll see how we celebrated the holiday season at Keren Or, with special Hanukkah performances and events for our students, and professional training programs (and fun!) for our staff. Although we can't cover all of the month's happenings in one newsletter, we hope you'll enjoy a taste of the wonderful things that you enable, and that you'll take this opportunity to support Keren Or one final time in 2021. I wish you only joy and blessings in 2022. Thank you for being a significant member of the Keren Or family.
With every best wish for health and happiness,
