The ADI family deeply mourns the passing of our beloved supporter and dear friend, Irving Carter.

Irving was a kind and gentle soul who cared deeply for ADI’s children in Israel with severe disabilities and complex medical conditions, and his giving heart was matched by an unparalleled generosity of spirit. Together with his dear wife, Gillian, he was constantly giving of himself to offer our residents a better quality of life, and did so with tremendous humility.

Over the years, the Carter family has sponsored and co-sponsored important ADI projects, including the recent dedication of a new medical clinic at Gedera’s ADI’s residential and rehabilitative centre, which provides a fully-accessible treatment centre that benefits ADI’s children daily. It is quite symbolic that this clinic has allowed ADI to keep the residents – all of whom have compromised immune systems and weak respiratory functioning – healthy, happy and out of harm’s way throughout this crisis. As the pandemic intensified, ADI staff utilised the clinic to work wonders, and they cannot imagine what might have befallen the children without it.

Although the novel coronavirus tragically took Mr. Carter’s life, his family’s generous gift allowed us to save the lives of so many others. As we continue to shield our residents from Covid-19, we are indebted to Mr. Carter and his wonderful family. We extend our deepest condolences to Gillian and their family.
