160 disabled IDF veterans receive new mobility scooters

The scooters were donated by Sheldon and Miriam Adelson through the Friends of the IDF Disabled Veterans Organization.

Some 160 mobility scooters were donated to disabled Israel Defense Forces veterans by philanthropists Sheldon and Miriam Adelson through the Friends of the IDF Disabled Veterans Organization.

Uri Ehrenfeld, 63, was among those who received one of the devices. Ehrenfeld was taken captive on the eighth day of the Yom Kippur War after being severely wounded and held captive for two-and-a-half months.

Ehrenfeld worked for the government for more than 20 years but had to retire following severe medical problems about 15 years ago.

“Due to the fact that I was severely wounded, I need to walk with a cane or crutches,” he told The Jerusalem Post. “Without those I can hardly walk. I heard about the possibility to get the gift and it’s given me the freedom to walk, it’s given me the freedom to access places with my family that I couldn’t go before.”
