First, The Fellowship helped to rescue this group of orphans from Alumim Children’s Home in Ukraine, when war came to their country—we evacuated them to the border and then found them safety in the Holy Land. And now, Fox News reports that as Israel has come under attack, these children have once again found safety:

A group of Ukrainian orphans who arrived in Israel last year after the invasion of Ukraine were safely evacuated from their home in southern Israel less than 24 hours after Hamas began its attacks on October 7…

“We realized that the children were very alarmed from the whole day, and [that there was] danger [in] staying in the big city, with continuous sirens and hearing about more and more injuries,” said IFCJ.

“We decided that we had to leave the city, despite the fear of the trauma that a sudden departure could cause, despite the uncertainty about where would we go.”

Praise God these children have found safety in a new location. Please pray for peace in Israel and for God’s protection over the Israeli people and for Jewish communities around the world.
