84-year-old Ninel lived a lonely life even before the coronavirus pandemic. Her small public-housing apartment lay empty. The widow could barely afford to buy groceries, so her stomach also lay empty. And then COVID protocols locked Ninel into this life. Alone, hungry, hopeless.
But then The Fellowship stepped in. Ninel qualifies for our With Dignity and Fellowship program, so she has begun receiving monthly help with groceries.
Now Fellowship volunteers visit, bringing both basic needs and much-needed companionship. A recent visitor was Yael Eckstein, who brought a Passover food box full of nutritious staples, as well as the items needed to celebrate this holy season.
And it’s all because of you – faithful Fellowship friends around the world – that this lonely widow has found hope, not only for Passover, but all year round.
