The Fellowship Hotline serves as a place to turn for every person in Israel with a problem. The people who call do not know where to turn for the help they need, and the Fellowship operators are trained to direct them to the Fellowship program, other non-profit organization, or government body that can help with their particular issue. We received a letter from Svitlana, who was helped in her search for medical treatments by the Hotline staff.

630 fires across Israel are now under control, but thousands need help getting back on their feet and rebuilding their lives. Here are four ways you can partner with The Fellowship and help.
Jeff Kaye, who works in The Fellowship’s Israel office, went to Haifa this morning to get a firsthand view of the damage caused by the recent wildfires and to see where The Fellowship can offer the most help.
Since last Tuesday, wildfires have done extensive damage in northern Israel, destroying more than 1,000 homes and forcing large-scale evacuations. Dozens of firefighting crews have been battling the blaze, including assistance from Palestinian and Greek officials. Egypt and Jordan have offered aid as well. Ynet reports on the extent of the damage, as well as The Fellowship’s immediate assistance.
For the second day, firefighters continued to battle wildfires in northern Israel, which have caused injuries and evacuations in a wide region between Haifa and Jerusalem. Israeli media reported that homes have been destroyed in the northern town of Zichron Ya’akov near Caesarea and surrounding areas, forcing families to flee without any belonging and with nowhere to go. Immediately The Fellowship responded by assessing the needs of these desperate families in Zichron Ya’akov and preparing to issue an emergency grant to help them with temporary accommodations, food, clothing, and other basic necessities.
