January 5th was a sad day for the entire Israel Guide Dog Center Family. We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our friend Martin Segal, Executive Director of Israel Guide Dog Centre UK

For Martin, Israel and the Israel Guide Dog Center was a passion, and his infectious enthusiasm, hard work and determination made him a true leader who took the Israel Guide Dog Centre UK from strength to strength – in the process, helping many Israelis affected by blindness, PTSD and autism by matching them with guide and service dogs.

We send our deepest condolences and love to Martin’s wife Rebecca, son Natan, his mother and sister, and all his family and friends. Baruch Dayan HaEmet, we miss him already!
