Impact Story: A Gift of Counsel

Wednesday, January 27, 2021

Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.

Romans 13:8

When we do our outreach, we are constantly interacting with recipients of our aid. This woman wished to remain anonymous but was willing to share some of her story with us. Adi* described her situation as desperate. She and her husband had found themselves in a difficult financial crisis after he’d lost his work as a bus driver, and she was left to care for the family through her work in a child care facility.

Their expenses remained the same: rent, utilities, food, and everything else it takes to raise a family and run a home—but their income became significantly restricted. Adi had become extremely anxious trying to figure out how to address the huge debt they accumulated. Even with the direct financial aid, we offer at Vision for Israel, it wasn’t clear to her how to proceed.

Thankfully, we were able to offer them financial counseling services through our trusted nonprofit partner, which combined with the aid itself to help make a much larger positive impact. Not only did they receive the money to give them a boost out of their situation, but the financial tools to use it wisely on their limited income.

At Vision for Israel, we aim to give all families in need the tools to fight their hardships, so they can have hope for a better future, and be better prepared for the road ahead. So we’re enrolling up to 120 households in a special program that consists of 10 one-on-one, in-depth meetings with a qualified financial consultant. When they complete the course, the couple will receive a financial gift of $1000 to start them off strong.

Will you help us rescue the poor in Israel—giving them a chance to stabilize their families and dig themselves out of the hardships of the pandemic?

Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

All contributions designated for specific projects shall be applied to those projects, and we may assess up to 20% to be used for administering the gift.
