Project Spotlight: Small Gifts

The Fellowship’s Small Gifts project for new mothers provides assistance to Israeli single mothers who face financial hardship, and also gives aid to their newborn babies.

When it comes to baby care, mothers must purchase many items. They must buy diapers, wipes, formula, baby bottles, and new clothes which the baby will continuously outgrow. These additional costs can really set a mother back financially if she does not have the means or the support to provide for her child. Thankfully, The Fellowship provides the mothers with a basket of baby supplies upon the arrival of their new baby. We also provide a monthly voucher worth 200 Israeli shekels (about $58) for six months so they can provide for their newborns’ needs.

Together, we help mothers like Aviva through The Fellowship‘s Small Gifts project. Aviva recently welcomed a new baby girl into her family, giving her two sons a new sister. She recently wrote us a heartfelt thank you note:

We thank The Fellowship for the months during which we were partners in the wonderful Small Gifts program. We were able to meet our children’s needs with a calm and quiet heart. The financial assistance made it much easier for us to deal with the many expenses we faced, especially when the economic situation began to become very unclear, with the outbreak of the coronavirus. We thank you wholeheartedly for your assistance during this challenging time. Thank you very much for your great work.

During the global pandemic, your gift will provide lifesaving essentials to the most vulnerable.
