Shmuel, the manager of the Bat Yam Aid Center, talks about the people regularly coming into his aid center: pensioners, families with low monthly income/ family sickness or disability, Holocaust Survivors, and Russian/Ukraine immigrants/refugees.
When an immigrant comes in from the Russia/Ukraine area, they do not speak Hebrew, but by showing their passport, they are able to be identified and helped.
When Israel was in lockdown, Shmuel delivered bags to the apartments, and at that point saw the living conditions of the families.
Now some pensioners are getting along in age to where they are not able personally to come to the center but instead send their care person to collect a bag of food or whatever useful item has come into the aid center.
Shmuel relayed that he sees a worsening of need in this past year, after Corona.
This was an important conversation with Shmuel about the need in Israel. With the big influx of over 60,000 immigrants this year to this tiny country, Israel Relief Aid is greatly needed and depended upon to bring real relief to
Israeli individuals and families in need.
