International Fellowship of Christians and Jews | Isaiah 58 Program – Assistance to Poor Jews in Former Soviet Union
Elevate Christian Network :: Global Humanitarians
The Isaiah 58 Program from International Fellowship of Christians and Jews helps people like Katrina. She is an 84-year-old Holocaust survivor living in the former Soviet Union. In her old age, Katrina lives alone without any family and rations her money for food and firewood.
She can only afford to burn one log each day to warm her small home. Katrina’s face lights up when Yael Eckstein pays her a visit and expresses her gratitude to The Fellowship for providing her with supplies to get through the winter.
About The Isaiah 58 Program
The Fellowship’s Isaiah 58 program provides food, medical care, housing and other basic assistance to poor Jews in the former Soviet Union, and finances a network of safe children’s homes throughout the area.
Through this lifesaving work, our Isaiah 58 partners are truly fulfilling the biblical mandate “to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter when you see the naked, to clothe him …” (Isaiah 58:7).
