Helping Jewish poor in the former Soviet Union
In the former Soviet Union, our Isaiah 58 outreach supports elderly Jews and orphaned and abandoned children by funding a network of soup kitchens, children's support programs, in-home food and medical services, and much more. As social service agencies in this part of the world continue to experience a shortfall in funds - and as reports of anti-Semitic incidents and violence continue to rise this assistance is more important than ever.
Isaiah 58 funds programs that provide these desperate people with:
- Soup kitchens, meals on wheels, and food boxes
- Medical care including prescriptions, medical supplies, and basic medical care and assistance
- Winter care including warm clothing, footwear and blankets, and heating and cooking fuel
- Home care as well as companionship for elderly shut-ins through in-home care and visits
- Support for children, through camps, education, and vocational training for abandoned Jewish children
