“Excuse me, Minister, I just want to tell you that this place is really amazing!”
That’s a rough translation of what one of the residents of the building called out from his balcony after recognizing the Welfare Minister, Itzik Shmuli, who was standing outside with the mayor, Dr. Aliza Bloch following their visit to Ezrat Achim’s Special Needs Center on Nachal Micha in Ramat Bet Shemesh.
Minister Shmuli asked the neighbors whether the dozens of Special Needs children with various disabilities coming in and out of the building on a daily basis disturbed them at all.
“Just the opposite!” the upstairs neighbor replied, “it is absolutely wonderful for us to have them in our building! You won’t find better neighbors than these sweet children anywhere!”
