June 2016 - Wellcome Collection Event

On Thursday 9th June, the British Friends of Reuth hosted a cocktail reception at the Wellcome Collection in Euston. We were privileged to have two inspirational speakers from Israel.  Dr. Dov Albukrek, the Director General of Reuth Medical and Rehabilitation Centre, spoke about what makes the care at Reuth so unique. Aya Ben Ron, an award-winning International artist, provided insight and commentary, as well as an insightful Q&A on her acclaimed film Shift, which was filmed at Reuth Medical Centre over a two-year period.

Over 70 attendees helped the charity raised over 15,500, which will go towards the patients Quality of Life Therapies at the hospital.

Yehuda Aaronson, Director of Overseas Development, Reuth said: It was a superb event, attended by people who were able to gain a deeper understand of the work that Reuth provides. In Dr. Albukrek's talk he mentioned Ben Naim, the young man who having been born with cerebral palsy was confined to a wheelchair for the first 24 years of his life. Thanks to a unique technological innovation at Reuth he has learned to walk using crutches, and is no longer dependent on his wheelchair. This story truly highlights the "Spirit of Reuth.
