During the last attacks from the Gaza strip, we received many phone calls asking for help. About fifty Grad rockets and Kassams fell on cities adjacent to Gaza strip daily, making the normal life impossible.
In spite of the tremendous success of the Iron Dome that intercepted about 90% of the rockets, people were under terrible stress as one had to run to the shelter every 15 minutes. Representatives of several municipalities needed urgently to evacuate the children from Ashkelon, Ashdod and Bnei Aish. The idea was simple – bus the children for a day to a Safari in Ramat Gan or elsewhere to give them and their parents relief – one day when they could escape the ugly reality of the war. Just a day.
One bus for 50 kids would cost $600 per day, we needed 10 buses immediately. To our great joy the response from our friends was immediate and generous: not only could we pay for the buses – we could also visit invalids in their homes and bring them food packages immediately after the cease fire held. We invited the Holocaust victims and veterans and could provide a generous food card for more than 500 people.
Similar projects have been held in the past.

Helping the needy and new immigrants
OCTOBER 15, 2015
The Israel Empowerment lobby continues the work with the needy and new immigrants, especially from the Ukraine who escaped from the war and bombing in East Ukraine. Israel absorbs about 5,000 Jewish Ukranian immigrants every year. Most of these people had to abandon all their assets; their houses, properties and personal belongings in order to give their children a chance for better life, away from the terrors of war.
The Israel Empowerment lobby is honoured to be among those who accept these immigrants, provide them with advice and money, and foremost offer them a place where they know they can get assistance.
Helping New Immigrants

Through these difficult times the covenant of Christian people and the Jewish nation proved to be strong and faithful.
