The lives of hundreds of thousands of poor families who struggle under ordinary circumstances to stay afloat have been completely overturned by constant rocket fire. Business has ground to a halt, children are unable to leave the homes, and sirens and rockets sound around the clock leaving terror and trauma in their wake. All semblance of normalcy has been completely destroyed.
It is imperative that we continue to rise to the occasion and provide families with the support and resources that they need to manage throughout the crisis.
So far since the beginning of the crisis Yad Eliezer has distributed:
3200 toys and board games ($25,000)
4000 care packages to soldiers on the front lines ($60,000)
1000 pairs tzitsit to soldiers on the front lines ($5,000)
800 food boxes to families in the south ($36,000)
$7000 worth of materna baby formula for babies in southern Israel whose mothers are unable to nurse
$280,000 food coupons for thousands of struggling families- including almanos and other single mothers in various communities in southern Israel.
In addition, Yad Eliezer's representatives have prepared 10 public shelters as playrooms with counselors who will provide programming for children to allow them some safe fun, and to give parents a few hours to take care of their other responsibilities.
Yad Eliezer is committed to doing everything possible to aide and support IDF soldiers and families in the south. Thank you for partnering with us in this important mission.
