Milestone: Toddlers with disabilities have been selected to star in Shilab’s campaign

Itamar Shai and Negev Loftus, two toddlers treated at the Chaim’s home in Ashkelon and Modi’in, a non-profit organization that works for the quality of life of people with disabilities and their families, are participating in a chain campaign of baby products Shilab, which is currently launching a clothing collection.

According to Chen, Itamar’s father, “We were playing in a public park when one girl approached him, called her mother and asked, ‘Why does he have something on his leg?’ I answered, ‘He has a CP, and then she said,’ Let’s get out of here, maybe he’s contagious. ‘I swallowed. “Promote that Itamar is equal to everyone, and they told me about the auditions for Shilav’s campaign. For me, it’s a way to show the world ‘look, my child is like your child’.”

Negev Loftus is the only one in the country and one of 92 people in the world living with the rare Hao Fountain Syndrome, which causes children to develop more slowly than usual. “Only now is Negev starting to walk with the treadmill, and we do not know if he will walk or talk at all,” his mother, Gal, told the people of the “Equal” news site, which deals with issues related to people with disabilities. “A friend tagged me in an agency post looking for people with disabilities For all processes. “For me, it’s a pride that Benny is part of Shilab’s campaign.”

Mishilav said that she “sees in Itamar and Negev children like everyone else, who were born to love, rejoice, laugh. Each of them is special in his own way and proudly represents the children of Israel.”

George Zimmerman, CEO of the Chaims Israel Association, concluded: “Seeing our little ones on billboards and on social media everywhere is another huge victory. The issue of integrating people with disabilities, and children in particular, preoccupies us daily in the six day care centers we operate across the country, where our caregivers and professional caregivers spread love and teach that everyone is different but equal. “Thank you to the Shilav network for helping us shout the obvious and sharing Itamar and Negev as an integral part of the other children and not in an attempt to look for headlines.”
