"Hiburim - Connections"

Integration of HFASD in the IDF

In these challenging times, the "Hiburim" program needs your support

Hiburim, as part of the "Effi – Asperger Israel" NGO, is dedicated to enable and facilitate the integration of young individuals diagnosed with high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (HFASD) into the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Military service in Israel is a civic duty to ensure the nation's security. It also serves as a crucial avenue for social integration within Israeli society. However, since many young individuals diagnosed with HFASD are exempt from military service, their integration into society is limited. To volunteer to the IDF, they require a specialized platform.

Since 2014, Over 170 participants have already served in various units and roles according to their abilities, and the IDF's needs. Their service contributes to the nation's security, and enables them to continue to contribute as civilians once they have completed their service.

In the face of the current emergency situation, our program participants continue to serve in their units, making valuable contributions to the security efforts of the IDF and the State of Israel. However, the situation exacerbated their unique HFASD challenges, so support is required now more than ever. To continue supporting their ability to cope and serve, we are raising funds at this critical time.

Since October 7th, we have remained dedicated to offering crucial support by our team of professionals who have deep understanding of each volunteer, their military environment, and their commanders. With them we find the path to continue functioning during this emergency, and providing unwavering support during difficult times.
