Ozen LaLev – The Attentive Hearts Project

Ozen LaLev is a social project that was initiated and is run by Dr. Sharon Lovesh. The Galila Foundation formed a collaboration with Ozen LaLev, aimed at expanding the activities this moving program offers to include people with special needs, part of the process to empower both them and the wider community.
Ozen LaLev’s activity is unique in Israel. The project trains volunteers from populations that are considered “disadvantaged” (people with limited mobility, blind people and those who are vision or hearing impaired, those who are chronically ill, and elderly people, among others). This project trains these volunteers to provide emotional support and works with them as they go out and ensure that every person in the community has a supportive shoulder and an attentive and accessible ear, as well as providing social and emotional tools, including rousing lectures that change people’s thinking and their direction in life.
