Faces of The Fellowship: Sheiva

Sheiva remains kind and optimistic, even when challenges come her way. Although she is bed-bound, Sheiva often tells her family and friends that showing kindness will make life meaningful, no matter how bad things seem. “Do good, and it will bounce back to you,” she says.

Sheiva lives with her adult son in a tiny, rundown apartment in the former Soviet Union. The plumbing barely works, and the walls and floors are cracked. They live on the edge of poverty.

However, Sheiva’s hopeful outlook has worked well for her. When The Fellowship discovered Sheiva’s poor living conditions, we stepped in to help. Now, each month, she receives a Fellowship food card and medicine. Thanks to our wonderful Christian and Jewish friends around the world, The Fellowship continues to rescue Jews living in poverty like Sheiva.

Learn how you can help impoverished elderly in need, like Sheiva, receive the lifesaving care they desperately need.
