Limor is a 33-year-old single mother living in Israel. She's raising two young daughters and a son, all between the ages of 5 to 9. Limor participates in The Fellowship's Azimut mentoring program, which helps young adults develop their abilities so they can enter the Israeli workforce from a place of confidence and success.
To help officials in the city of Jerusalem respond to any large-scale situation – such as a terror attack, war, or natural disaster, The Fellowship funded the purchase of a Forward Command Vehicle that will allow police and fire departments, security forces, city officials, public works employees, and other first responders to coordinate their efforts as efficiently and as quickly as possible.
Ulyana, 5, lives with her mother, Sasha, in a tiny room of a communal apartment in a low-income housing project. The stairway leading up to the family's fifth-floor apartment is filthy and reeks of urine. While the building is not looked after, and many of the residents are criminals, the families that live with Ulyana in her shared apartment are kind and decent.
When The Fellowship learned about the plight of thousands of elderly living in poverty in Israel – many forced to choose between paying for rent or food or medicine, as they can't afford them all – we launched our With Dignity and Fellowship program. Through a vast team of staff and volunteers, this program helps Israel's impoverished elderly – many of them Holocaust survivors – with food, medicine, and companionship.
