January 26th, 2023 – Hundred of underprivileged individuals and families from Kiryat Gat received brand new sportswear clothing and shoes, thanks to GAiN Germany. Kiryat Gat is the 4th poorest city in Israel.
Together with the «Kulanu le’eman kulanu» (All of us for all of us) local foundation and the Jewish Agency, Helping Hand Coalition for Israel participated in distributing the beautiful donation to many single mothers, new immigrants from Ethiopia, the former USSR, and local neighborhood residents living below the lines of poverty in Israel.
Mordekhai, a 63 year old homeless man, was deeply blessed to receive brand new shoes and clothing items and said he felt the warmth and love from the donors. Liron, a local single mother of 5, was so impressed with the quality of the goods she received for her family.
A special thanks to Yigal Weinberger, the head of the local foundation, and to Noam Ezra, Jewish Agency project manager, and to all the volunteers who coordinated one of the several beautiful distributions that took place this past week. The event also had the special attendance of Larry Williamson, President of the “Reach out America” disaster relief organization.
A huge thanks to GAiN Germany for shipping such high-quality goods and to our local partners Joseph Project for handling all the logistics of bringing the precious donation into Israel. Amazing team work!
