Giving food relief to Israel's most vulnerable populations supported by Myisrael's causes.
Help feed struggling families in Israel
Aviva is 33 and a mother of 4 children between the ages of 2 and 12. During the last 2 years she has lost her job and got divorced and the children's father barely supports the family financially. After finally finding a job cleaning homes, COVID-19 meant that many people cancelled her services while isolating.
Filling Aviva's fridge means that there is one less thing that she needs to worry about while tending to all the other needs of her family.
It is widely known that COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on mental health in general and among those who were already emotionally vulnerable. Shoshi comes from a broken home and lives with her Mom. They "live on the edge financially". During the first COVID-19 lockdown, her Mom was hospitalized for emergency cardiac surgery. You can only imagine the acute intensification of stressful feelings and emotions in having to worry about her Mom’s surgery, recuperation and being all alone at home during this time. The food donated by Myisrael's donors made a profound difference in Shoshi's life and helped to alleviate the ever increasing financial and emotional distress she faces.
WHY CHOOSE TO FILL-A-FRIDGE?
Throughout all of Myisrael's 18 causes there are hundreds of families who are struggling and living under the constant pressures that their financial constraints induce over and above the emotional, mental and physical challenges so many of them face. Your donation will allow them a moment's respite knowing their fridges are full without them worrying about how to afford it.
"The food donation made it possible for us to equip ourselves with the basics and get through this difficult period with dignity. It strengthens the feeling of the love and connection between human beings"
