Beterem (“beforehand” in Hebrew) Safe Kids Israel aims to promote child safety and create a safer environment for children in Israel. It was founded in 1995 at the Schneider Children’s Medical Center and is the only organization in Israel to exclusively address child safety. Beterem is the official representative, on behalf of the State of Israel, at the European Child Safety Alliance and is a member of Safe Kids Worldwide since 2001. Beterem works in close collaboration with government offices, local municipalities and other public authorities combining a multifaceted approach towards preventing injuries and promoting children’s’ safety. They reduce child injury rates by addressing this issue in a multi constitutional and methodical way and raising awareness. Indeed, in the first decade of Beterem’s activity they achieved a decrease of 30% in child mortality rates from preventable injuries in Israel.
