Nati Hakshur with students

28-yr-yr old Nati was injured in 2011 when shrapnel from a missile severed his right left and severely damaged his left in Be’er Sheva. He shared his remarkable story of survival, recovery and rehabilitation thanks to Beit Halochem. Nati’s incredible determination to walk again with the aid of a prosthetic leg saw him walking within four months of his injury and return to his family.

He told students of the amazing services and support he receives from Beit Halochem rehabilitation and sports centre and of his involvement in everything from wheelchair basketball and table tennis to swimming and pilates, and how he views the centre as a second home. The fellow injured people he has met through Beit Halochem have proved to be mentors and role models for his own recovery and has allowed him to develop a mindset of “nothing can stop me”.

He thanked the Australian Jewish Community for the love and support they show for Israel and told how Beit Halochem centres would not exist without the help of Jewish communities worldwide.
