Relief for Israelis Under Attack

As the rocket attacks on Israel escalated, JDC distributed emergency kits for the elderly and people with disabilities, and deployed emergency teams of social workers together with the Ministry of Wellfare to support people with special needs.  It organized a meals-on-wheels program for elderly sheltering at home and provided urgent crisis-related information to the public through its Israeli Facebook page.  Thousands of trained volunteers from its network of programs brought comfort to children confined for long periods to bomb shelters, organizing arts and crafts activities and entertainment that helped ease their fears.
