On January 27, the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ) launched this year’s Winter Warmth campaign with Yael Eckstein and IFCJ volunteers distributing heating vouchers for $90 each to the elderly in need.
This year 22,000 elderly living in 57 cities and towns in Israel will be helped by the Winter Warmth project – providing winter warmth to those who would otherwise freeze. And the elderly and their families have already started sending in thank you letters to let IFCJ know how grateful they are for the much needed assistance:
Thank you for thinking about us.
Thank you for thinking about those who others don’t notice.
What would so many different people do without the holy work of The Fellowship?
“Welcome! Come in!” Anna says to Fellowship representatives as they enter her apartment, which is small, but decorated with potted plants wherever they will fit. Anna then sits down at a small table and begins to tell her story.
