We are continuing to work fervently on distributing school packs to children all over Israel whose families cannot afford to buy them new supplies. It's important for us to give them the opportunity to start at the same level as their peers. Last week we went to a day care center for children at risk in Mevaseret Tzion to meet these children, bless them and give them beautiful backpacks in person. Batya Segal said, "When we entered the place, we saw the kids joyfully playing outside despite the heavy heat. . . .

Some families find a special place in our heart, and we do our best to help them break out of the circle of poverty. One of them is the Levi* family, whom we've been helping regularly over the last couple of years.

David*, the father, was severely injured after being stabbed all over his body in a terror attack in Jerusalem in 2013. He is now suffering from various disabilities and severe trauma and is unable to work. His wife, Michal*, was laid off from her job and is working hard cleaning homes. The family of six is struggling financially.

Recently, Vision for Israel donated ten brand-new computers to a community center in Kiryat Gat. This particular community center is specifically for elderly people, including Holocaust survivors, and was founded with the purpose of enabling people to grow old where they live, in an environment they are familiar with. The center provides many social activities for the residents and has a computer room that was functioning until a year ago when, due to the age of the computers, the room became unusable.

With every donation that goes out from Vision for Israel, our hearts grow and rejoice. We know how much the recipients need the help and how the donations give them the strength to go on and the means to live with a little more dignity. When we meet them, the sparkles in their eyes, the smiles on their faces and the embraces they give us are our reward. 

 

Once in a while, we receive thank you letters that warm our heart. Recently we received a note from a mother who received backpacks for her children:
