What's New?

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 centre 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. . . .

Recently, Stephanie wrote to tell us how much she and her nine-year-old son, Nathan, enjoy the show.  She wrote, "Thank you so much for bringing your love, gorgeous country, beautiful people, and marvelous foods into my home each week.  You bless my day with your blessed program and your love – it comes flooding through the TV airwaves, and it is very evident that Christ/Yeshua fills your hearts.  You are truly an extension of Yeshua reaching out to many in your homeland – the blessed and magnificent Israel, as well as reaching out lovingly with Yahweh's love across the globe."

Recently, Vision for Israel donated ten brand-new computers to a community centre in Kiryat Gat. This particular community centre 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 centre 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:

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.

Many terror victims suffer from post-trauma and financial difficulties that prevent them and their families from going out. Therefore, Vision for Israel has joined the Organization for the Welfare of Terror Victims in providing cultural evenings once in a while. Recently, Vision for Israel sponsored such an evening in Tel Aviv where the victims were treated to the play Simply to Love.

Hanan* is a single father of two children and is a terror victim since March 2002. He was sitting in a restaurant in Tel Aviv when a terrorist entered and started shooting. Hanan was hiding inside the building until the shooting stopped and was saved. The frightening experience of almost losing his life caused him to develop a post-traumatic stress disorder. Until the day of the terror attack, Hanan was working, making a good living and enjoying a rich social life. In one moment, his life was turned upside-down.

Yamit* lost her husband in December 2015 in a terror attack. On that sad day, her late husband (Ofer) was driving in Jerusalem when he saw two terrorists armed with knives stabbing people who were passing by. He got out of his car with a metal rod and ran toward the terrorists. At the same time, three policewomen heard the screaming and shot the terrorists. Tragically, Ofer was caught in the line of fire and was killed on the spot. In honour of his bravery, he received a medal of courage.

As early as May, the Vision for Israel team begins working hard to prepare for one of our largest and most exciting projects of the year: Pack to School.

This year, after much work and cooperation with dozens of welfare departments, organizations and nonprofits from all over the country, thousands of backpacks arrived early in July at the Millennium Centre. The staff organized the boxes of backpacks according to donation locations and quantities and carefully prepared the paperwork.
