Clothing Project Benefits Kids in Ukraine and Russia

IFCJ and our faithful friends help the needy both in the Holy Land and elsewhere. Today, Chabad reports on a clothing project that is bringing much-needed warmth, comfort, and confidence to Jewish children in the former Soviet Union:Some 5,000 Jewish children in more than 50 cities throughout Russia and Ukraine will be able to purchase new winter clothing thanks to the seventh biannual clothing project, which distributes gift-card certificates to families in need...“Instead of being handed clothes at random, children can go to the store themselves, shop for the styles they like, and walk away with a sense of joy and a boost in self-esteem,” explains David Mondshine, director of the Federation of Jewish Communities of the CIS (FJC). “This, in a way, provides much more than just clothing for these children..."The project is a joint initiative of the FJC; the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews; and Gloria Jeans clothing company. It began in the fall of 2012 to provide assistance to the most vulnerable community members: children with social and health disabilities; children from one-parent homes; and children from low-income families.
