The war in Gaza may be over for now, but assistance for southern Israel residents, including trauma relief is still urgent. With close to a million Israelis within Hamas terrorist rocket range, anxiety remains high. United Jewish Appeal, through UIA Federations Canada (UIAFC) is taking a leadership role to ensure that aid is made available to those who have been besieged by relentless rocket attacks in Southern Israel. But we can’t do it without you.
Over the past several weeks, through your support, we were able to offer those in the region:
Trauma relief programs
Crisis intervention for Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome
Respite away from the area for the region's children
Clinical support to individuals and families in severe distress
Computers for kids to continue their school work while away from class
Since the beginning of the current conflict, our representatives have been on the ground in local schools, in homes destroyed by missiles, and shelters offering support and assessing needs. Together, we are making a difference. We urge you to contribute to the Southern Israel Relief Fund, and remind the men, women and children that we stand with them- always.
