This Rosh Hashanah, help bring new hope to fam­i­lies like Chava’s.

The Jewish Chronicle - - JNF -

The day So­cial Ser­vices came to take away her four chil­dren was the worst day of Chava’s life. She was di­vorced, back liv­ing with her poverty-stricken mother in a house that had be­come dan­ger­ously di­lap­i­dated. A block­age in the drainage sys­tem caused ran­cid wa­ter to leak into the bath­room re­sult­ing in toxic mould spread­ing through­out the home. In those cir­cum­stances, So­cial Ser­vices felt they had no choice but to re­move the chil­dren. Chava was con­tacted by JNF UK’s pro­ject Build­ing Hope who sent in trades­men to fix the prob­lems in the home. In par­al­lel, so­cial work­ers sup­ported Chava, help­ing her se­cure suit­able em­ploy­ment and en­hance her par­ent­ing skills. The chil­dren have now been granted week­end vis­its with the prospect of a per­ma­nent re­turn in the near fu­ture. JNF UK is bring­ing this life-chang­ing pro­gramme to hun­dreds more fam­i­lies in the Negev towns of Kiryat Gat and Kiryat Malachi, where un­for­tu­nately many peo­ple live be­low the poverty line. This work will be car­ried out along­side a host of other tar­geted JNF UK projects aimed at cre­at­ing a last­ing dif­fer­ence. JNF UK be­lieves that in or­der to strengthen Is­rael and in­stil last­ing change, no­body should be left be­hind. Please visit­nate or call 0800 901 333 this Rosh Hashanah and give more fam­i­lies like Chava’s a brighter fu­ture.
