HAMA Israel Humans & Animals in Mutual Assistance LTD
ID: 513349647    Category:
HAMA is a government registered nonprofit organization in Israel committed to the healing of human violence directed towards people and animals alike through Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT).
The organization has long been a leader in establishing AAT as a complementary therapy to conventional psychological/medical treatment. The unique and mutual bonding between human and animal welfare is the cornerstone of our philosophy and activities. Those animals rescued and rehabilitated from human violence, abuse and neglect, as well as from injury and abandonment in time of war, have in many cases become important facilitators of human recovery and rehabilitation through personal empowerment and mutual healing.

We are a pluralistic organization that adheres to the mission of tolerance, mutual respect, and healing - all component values of Tikun Olam. We help humans and animals at risk, regardless of age, shape, color, gender, ethnicity, nationality, religion, or breed (in the case of canine or feline).

We coordinate our activities with cooperating hospitals, social service agencies and schools. Our programs are coordinated and supervised by the institutions' directors, doctor.

  • Environment

  • Old-Age Homes

HAMA has been particularly active in the following areas: Children and families challenged with AD(H)D (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder) and associated behavioral and emotional disorders, often accompanied by developmental/learning disabilities. AD(H)D Child-Parent Support Groups are currently running in the communities of Ness Tsiona and Holon through their Department of Social Services. Patients, young and old, suffering from PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), including both children traumatized by violence and war as well as the elderly and institutionalized Survivors of the Holocaust, struggling to re-establish communication with their environment. Elderly service dogs who have been replaced by younger dogs are given a permanent home and refuge at HAMA. We provide these retired canines with renewed purpose in life as "AAT dogs" who in turn serve as vital role models for human society in its treatment of the elderly.
