In time for Independence Day on Thursday, SHALVA Founder and Chairman Kalman Samuels spoke to Arutz Sheva about his unique organization for special needs children which is opening a new center in Jerusalem.

Samuels described the origins of SHALVA, the Association for Mentally and Physically Challenged Children in Israel, and the important work it does to provide high quality care and "peace of mind" for disabled children.

The organization has played an important role in its twenty-five years of award-winning program development.
