The Fellowship organized a three-day fair to distribute school supplies to needy families and single mothers to kick off the school year.
We partnered with the Department of Welfare and the Center for Child Development in the city of Tira, and collected donations from local businesses. At the event, we distributed loose leaf paper, notebooks, and more to the 70 students who attended the fair.
The Fellowship’s Rana, the field coordinator who organized the event, said she was very moved to see the joy of the children and parents. “The eyes of some of the mothers lit up the place,” said Rana. “The help of the libraries and businesses that welcomed us with joy and a huge heart made me want to contribute more and more.
“The event was significant and necessary for the families in need. I’m happy for the privilege of arranging it.”
We feel privileged to help Jewish children in need who could not afford school supplies otherwise. This is the kind of helpful support our donors make possible every day.
