JEWISH WORLD WATCH
October 29, 2009
I have had the privilege of being involved with JWW over the past four years. The words on the our wristbands that state DO NOT STAND IDLY BY dominate the actions of the organization. It is takes us beyond our comfort zone to know the atrocities of the world and within our abilities to make a difference. Presently, JWW reaches the individuals in the Darfur region of Sudan through the solar cooker project, building wells and medical clinics, and the school backpack project. On a political level, JWW has had rallies and contact politician campaigns to bring awareness and apply pressure to bring a change. The speakers bureau has reached out to schools, camps and religious institutions to educate as many people as possible as little information is given out in the general news. Last but not least is the dedicated staff who even put themselves at risk by traveling to the regions that are supported by JWW to those suffering know that thousands of miles away they are cared about. As JWW reaches out to the Congo, while continuing the projects in Darfur, staff members are on their way to visit.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
dedicated and always seeking ways to make a difference for people who were living through a genocide as the Jewish people had experienced. The bond helped all of us to push ourselves and work a little harder to bring some form of change.
