It was announced this morning that The Fellowship will partner with the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), with whom we have worked for many years, on a new project to distribute medicine and food to impoverished elderly Jews in the former Soviet Union (FSU), thus saving countless lives in the coming years.

Although Nikita, 10, was born with cerebral palsy and struggles to walk, he still is quite determined to be as independent as possible and remains happy and energetic.

Thankfully, The Fellowship delivers financial aid to this deserving family!
