Giving Hope to Single Mothers and Their Babies

Rosh HaShanah food distribution to young mother

According to Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics, there are 131,000 “single parent” families . . . almost 31% of single-parent families live in poverty.


These households are caused by abandonment, death of a spouse, separation, etc. but the parents who continue with their little ones must remain strong and give their children a normal life and education. They need help to stay strong. 

Many times, a portion of Israel Relief Aid’s containers go to aid centers especially suited for these single parent families.   The recipients of aid are so grateful because it makes them feel like someone understands their plight and cares deeply about their welfare.  And WE DO!  The next container is being planned . . . let’s together continue this!
