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- alwaysPlease contribute to the Southern Israel Relief Fund by clicking here.
