Partnering to Amplify Impact
At the Barzilai Foundation we believe in collaboration, not competition with other support organisations.
This means our programs often start with finding the right partner. By creating strategic partnerships we are able to leverage community connections, skillsets and capabilities.
Our partners are as diverse as the work we do and include charities, universities, colleges, secondary schools, government organisations and other foundations. The one thing all our partners have in common is a mission to create positive impacts in the lives of others.

Founded in 2010 by a social entrepreneur and parents of children born with clubfoot, MiracleFeet is the largest global organization solely dedicated to eliminating untreated clubfoot. Each year, 200,000 babies are born with the condition, which causes one or both feet to turn inwards and upwards, making walking painful and difficult and subjecting children to a lifetime of marginalization. 95% of cases can be treated using the non-surgical Ponseti Method, which involves a series of casts and a nighttime brace, yet less than 15% of children globally have access to it. MiracleFeet increases access to this treatment through clinics and partnerships in 36 low- and middle-income countries, treating over 90,000 children to date.
