Support Widows and Orphans
The key to a good life is gratitude, and the key to gratitude is to give to those that have less.
At Chaya Israel, we’ve made it our mission to remember those that fate has been less kind to – especially widows and orphans.
Some of the people we help are families broken apart by terror attacks or casualties of war. Others, simply struck by disease.
Our network of families receive monthly assistance, and on-going monetary and social support ensuring that they too can lead happy lives.
With your donation, another widow, and another orphan won’t have to go through another lonely day. They won’t have to open the fridge – only to find nothing in it again.
When life has you pinned against the wall, sometimes it is only through help from your friends that you make it out alive. CIF aims to be that friend for many people to whom life has dealt a difficult hand.
We feel it is our obligation to help them.
Focus on Victims of Terror Attacks and Wars
Over the years, we’ve found that a family victimized by terror often suffers both financial and psychological struggles.
It’s hard to lose a loved one – and it’s also hard to lose a source of income.
Suicide bombers can strike anywhere – in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Beer Sheva, Petach Tikva, or anywhere else in beautiful Israel.
Meanwhile, Israeli soldiers have fallen on the front lines of Israeli wars – not just in recent years, but in previous years – whether it be 1948, 1956, 1967, 1973… and so on.
Soliders that have fallen in those wars have often left a wife and kids behind that had to learn how to fend for themselves. Sometimes they were able to pick up the pieces independently – other times, a little help from their friends at Chaya Israel went a long way, and continues to go a long way.
If this is the price of protecting the land of Israel, then may we continue to strengthen our resolve. Many women and kids have joined the circle of widows and orphans that have sacrificed more than we know for this great country we call “The Homeland”.
