The Fellowship Welcomes New Ukrainian Immigrants

Most of the olim (immigrants) who arrived in the Ben Gurion Airport this afternoon on one of The Fellowship’s Freedom Flights are refugees from war-torn Eastern Ukraine.

Although tired, the olim feel blessed to be home in Israel, finally escaping the fighting in Ukraine.

Girls from the Bnei Akiva youth movement welcomed the new olim by singing and handing out Israeli flags and balloons to the children.

Then Fellowship staff and volunteers handed out sandwiches and water. They also wrote down their new Israel ID and telephone numbers.

Finally, the olim left the terminal, and they entered vans that took them to their new homes to start their new lives in Israel.
