They are widowed, divorced, or abandoned. They are Israel’s single mothers, making up over 95% of the 130,000 single parent families there. Many are in crisis situations, relying heavily on government assistance. When COVID-19 hit, survival became even harder.
Thousands lost jobs. Others struggled to find childcare during school closures—often forcing them to stay home and lose their paychecks. These hardworking mothers have enough challenges making ends meet in normal times. But the recent lockdown robbed many of income, childcare, and the mobility to seek new options. Where could they turn?
Thankfully, friends like you were there through CBN Israel. Since the pandemic began, we have distributed more food packages, plus extra food vouchers and many other forms of aid. We have also helped with medical care, medicine, and care for special needs children requiring 24/7 supervision.
Arik, the head of our family department, is in constant contact with many single mothers, offering emergency relief, financial planning, and encouragement. Caring friends like you have made it possible for him and our volunteers across the country to shop for house-bound mothers and desperate families—and deliver groceries, diapers, and medicine to their homes.
Arik says gratefully, “We are making such a difference in so many people’s lives… Thank you for blessing Israel and her people in need.” Your support can make a tremendous difference in these challenging times. Please join us in reaching out!GIVE TODAY
