More than 900,000 Israeli children and families live in poverty, and needs are largely left unmet due to Israel’s focus on increased defense spending to protect these same children and families from terrorism and war.
However, being an immigrant family without gainful employment is even harder.
Israel Relief Aid’s network of aid centers addresses the critical needs of poverty children and orphans in Israel by providing food and clothing/textiles and yes, new shoes!
What is the cost of children’s sport shoes in Israel? Roughly 175-200 ils. Multiply by number of children, and for 3 children it can easily go to 600 ils.
These new sport shoes and blankets came in a large shipping container to Israel thanks to the help of all of you!
