The Fellowship | October 16, 2023
As the war with Hamas continues, The Fellowship sends 20 million shekels (more than $5 million) in aid to those in war-torn areas, reports the Jerusalem Post:
The approved allocations from the emergency grant include the distribution of 400 grants valued at 5,000 shekels for families of IDF personnel injured in combat; 1.5 million shekel to NETEL (Victims of Trauma from Terror Activities) to increase support hotlines; and the transfer of 2 million shekel (matched by the Israel Lottery Commission for a total of 4 million shekel) to go to communities on the Gaza border to address immediate critical needs identified by local welfare and social work teams, including food, medications, transportation, therapy services, and more…
These allocations represent only a portion of the ongoing projects, with the Fellowship continuously updating its aid efforts based on communication with partners in the field. The IFCJ is committed to managing and funding the distribution of various resources, including food, clothing, equipment for soldiers, first aid kits for Magen David Adom and United Hatzalah, and games for children, while addressing changing needs.
