• The ZDVO

The Zahal Disabled Veterans Organization (ZDVO) is a registered non-profit organization, established in the wake of the War of Independence (1949), with the purpose of providing the 3,400 disabled veterans from this war with all their needs towards the long process of their rehabilitation. It is the only organization legally responsible for representing those veterans wounded and disabled while serving in defense of the State of Israel.

The 51,000 members wounded and disabled while fighting in defense of the State of Israel are only part of the heavy price our young nation has had to pay for its independence and survival. Following the intensive ongoing combat and counter-terrorist activity carried out daily to safeguard Israel’s independence. Several hundred new members join the ranks of the organization annually.
