This 40-foot container from the Netherlands was just unloaded in Haifa and in Petach Tikvah. Fifteen aid centers all over Israel were stocked from this one container, and two new aid centers were outfitted.
In only 3 ½ hours, some 930 cartons of clothing and hygiene products were distributed in Jerusalem, Rishon LeZion, Petach Tikvah, Ariel, Haifa, Carmiel, Nazareth, Akko, Kfar Saba, Nof HaGalil (Nazareth Ilit), and Netanya. We call this Israel Relief Aid Fast Flow Technology.
We have now entered into the cold season in Israel and the nights are very cold. 610 homeless Israelis died on the streets of Israel in the last 15 years, a study by the National Insurance Institute says. The fact that homeless Israelis can go into an aid center anywhere in the country and receive a blanket, jacket and other warm clothing is a comforting thought.
However, these items go fast and there are too many homeless and needy Israelis living under the poverty line.
Let’s together bring in another aid container quickly. In the Netherlands a container is now being packed.
In this month of December, donations toward humanitarian aid in Israel will be matched dollar for dollar. EVERY DOLLAR YOU GIVE WILL BE MATCHED (up to $25,000)
