Emergency Aid Containers Update

11 aid containers unloaded October-February, distributed to evacuees and immigrants
– 2 aid containers from Poland and UK—one on the water to Israel and one in Customs
– 2 aid containers from the US and Hong Kong are in the loading process

Your financial help at this time will help to bring huge loads into Israel to meet the need.  

Displaced and Evacuated Families

Israel Relief Aid continues with weekly food provision to the Bat Yam families who were evacuated from the northern border. In Bat Yam, while the evacuees were given hotel rooms, food was not included.  

The situation in the north is that Hezbollah bombs indiscriminately fall on civilian homes, cars, public places. So it’s not safe for them to go back home. Most of them are paying for the home in the north – rent or mortgage – plus living expenses in Bat Yam. They greatly appreciate this provision of food!

February Project – Winter Warm Campaign

Israel Relief Aid’s Winter Warm Campaign continues, as temperatures in the Holy Land go to frigid with rainstorms and snow in the north.  

Update from CEO Jo Kaplan – February 16 2024

Coats are super expensive here in Israel, and donated new coats in the aid containers save the day.
