As the new school year begins in Israel, Vision for Israel is wrapping up our summer distribution of school backpacks. In Bethlehem, over 200 children from financially distressed families received school bags. The distribution took place in the city’s Baptist church, where the children participate in activities and learning every Sunday. On the day of the distribution, the children came to the church and were gifted with trendy new backpacks. They were very surprised, expressing their gratitude over and over. The light in the children’s eyes is the fuel that moves us to continue in this important work. And you are the reason we are able to support the needy communities in our society.
