Faces of The Fellowship: Veronica and Paul

Veronica and Paul are siblings. Their mother is physically challenged and receives a modest disability pension. Their dad works in a low-paying job.When he was younger, Paul suffered intestinal poisoning and was later diagnosed with cerebral palsy. He needs regular physical therapy and is often sick because of his compromised immune system.Veronica suffers from scoliosis and a congenital brain defect which impacts her behavior. While she is advanced intellectually, socially she is lagging behind other children her age. Veronica’s sometimes-aggressive behavior leads her to start fights at school, and she has repeatedly been expelled.Thankfully Veronica and Paul both receive help from Fellowship-supported Chamah Center for Child Development. The children attend classes in Jewish tradition, art therapy, and speech therapy, and they meet regularly with a psychologist.Thanks to this extra help, Veronica is now involved in the school plays and Paul is in a class to prepare for school. Veronica is behaving well and has made friends with the other children. None of this would have been possible without The Fellowship’s help.

Passover a Sacred Time to Save Lives

Help the Unseen

You can heed the biblical mandate “not to turn away from your own flesh and blood” (Isaiah 58:7) and provide a needy elderly Jew, like Olga, with food, heating fuel, warm clothes, and blankets this winter. Every day is important as the harsh cold winds descend upon the former Soviet Union. Please prayerfully consider giving your best and most generous gift to The Fellowship today for this lifesaving work.
