From braces for a crooked bite or curved spine to extensive surgery or psychiatric care, BL – Girls Town Jerusalem covers all necessary medical expenses, including those beyond the perimeters of the health care funds. Nearly all of our children receive follow–up dental care and orthodontic work beyond the scope of what is covered by their health fund. Additionally, we are laying the groundwork for a more comprehensive approach to the girls’ emotional health, as the need for psychological and psychiatric therapies in a home like ours is tremendous. The cost for these services is equally tremendous!
Special situations require special responses and BL – Girls Town Jerusalem is prepared to respond to the various medical needs of each individual child. When one of our girls suffered sudden and acute pain in her back, it was discovered that a severe curvature in her spine (scoliosis) may damage her internal organs. BL – Girls Town Jerusalem spared no cost in flying the child, her older sister and a chaperone to France to see a specialist. The child underwent surgery, and thank G–d today she is a beautiful young woman – tall, proud and healthy!
