About Us

The number one priority of the Zahal Disabled Veterans Organization (ZDVO) is to support the care and rehabilitation of Israel’s 54,000 injured soldiers, victims of terror and their families who are members of the four Beit Halochem (House of the Warriors) located in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa and Be’er Sheva. A much needed fifth centre in Ashdod is due for completion at the end of 2025. ZDVO is the only organisation in Israel legally responsible for the wellbeing of Israel’s wounded soldiers.

Our Vision

To support the rehabilitation and wellbeing of Israel’s 54,000 injured soldiers to help improve their quality of life.

Our Values

Awareness, Commitment, Compassion, Dedication Integrity, Teamwork & Initiative

We at ZDVO Beit Halochem Australia pledge our continued support to assist them.

Funds raised in Australia are remitted directly to Beit Halochem in Israel. The four Beit Halochem rehabilitation and sports centres located in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa and Be’er Sheva, provide our brave wounded heroes the opportunity to regain the dignity and quality of life they deserve. The centres serve as a place of comfort where members feel supported and are not alone. There are currently over 54,000 members of Beit Halochem (House of Warriors) and sadly this figure continues to increase due to the thousands of soldiers injured during the current Operation Iron Swords.

When the newly injured soldiers and victims of terror meet wounded veterans from Beit Halochem, they begin to understand that they are not alone and that there is an organization that will take care of them for the rest of their lives. Many of Israel’s wounded veterans together with Beit Halochem volunteers are quick to visit the newly wounded soon after their injury providing vital comfort and support to them and their families. Every time an Israeli soldier is injured, ZDVO Beit Halochem Australia is there to help on their road to recovery, supporting them to be productive members of Israeli society and helping these brave men and women come to terms with traumatic physical injuries as well as the psychological scars that many will face for the rest of their lives.

The Beit Halochem centres boast an array of exceptional rehabilitative services including physiotherapy and hydrotherapy, Pilates, gym programs, special activities for members with PTSD, wheelchair basketball and wheelchair tennis, as well as a vast range of sports options, family-oriented and cultural activities.

With an emphasis on sport, many of the members go on to compete in international sporting events including the Paralympic Games. Notably, for the first time, Israel participated in the 2023 Invictus Games in Germany, where a significant majority of the Israeli delegation were members of Beit Halochem.

Giving them the help they need is our top priority!

Your support is allocated towards a wide range of programs and treatments as well as the purchase of much needed equipment for our brave wounded soldiers at our four Beit Halochem rehabilitation centres.

"Beit Halochem gives me so much. It enables me to learn a lot about myself. There, I am surrounded by people just like me, disabled and wounded. It is so important to be in such a warm and embracing environment, where I am understood."

Menny Guy, member of Beit Halochem
