This week, the VFI team delivered money vouchers to several families throughout Jerusalem. We met many single parents who live off of one salary and struggle to fulfill their children’s basic needs.
Alina* (*name has been changed) was one of the recipients. A new immigrant, she is a single mother of a 1.5-year-old boy, and the two live with Alina’s ailing mother. The family suffers from severe financial difficulties with their only income of a small government stipend. In order to provide for her family and improve their condition, Alina studies nursing. Our gift of financial aid helps Alina sustain herself and her son, and enables her to invest in her studies to advance them into a more stable and comfortable life.
When we meet these needy families and provide them with financial support, their needs are reflected in their eyes and they move us with their gratitude. It is all thanks to you, our generous donors, that lives like Alina’s are changed for the better!
