I am a disabled US Veteran on a small income but I make sure my donation to Yad Ezra is the very first thing I do every month. I have been blessed to be able to donate to Yad Ezra.

I work for the Jerusalem branch of Yad Ezra v'Shulamit. The staff, both paid and volunteers, put their all into this organization. They work hard to help those in need by providing food, clothing and school supplies for children, and helping the breadwinners of the family find jobs so they can support themselves.
