Terror Attacks/War Response
WAR IN ISRAEL
On October 7, 2023, Israel faced a merciless attack, unleashing a devastating wave of violence. Over 1,200 individuals were killed, including men, women, children, and seniors. 3,000 were injured. More than 230 were taken hostage. Civilians and soldiers are grappling with the harrowing reality of losing limbs, while some endure the unimaginable loss of their family members and homes. The Impact of this event has left an indelible mark on our community.
The Next Step: Standing Strong in the Face of Adversity
In response to the onslaught, The Next Step stepped in, emerging as a beacon, providing comprehensive support to victims. Our dedicated team is on the ground daily, reaching out to the new amputees, offering solace to those who have no just lost their limbs but also their homes and loved ones to the violence.
In response to the high volume of 35+ new amputees, The Next Step launched a new fund to support the prosthetic care of select victims who sustained complex injuries, resulting in complicated amputations that will require rehabilitation and prosthetic care in the US.
The Next Step also launched a Physical Therapy Volunteer Program which sends missions of Physical Therapists to assist the various rehabilitation centers in Israeli hospitals. (To volunteer please use this link).
