MINISTRY NEEDS AND OPPORTUNITIES
Throughout the entire year, please remember Israel
Holiday and year-end financial gifts are appreciated however please remember Israel and her people all year long as you make important decisions regarding where to send your hard earned resources for charitable purposes. For suggestions on organizations we know to be doing good work with little or no overhead, please feel free to contact us by phone or email.
If you elect to send a donation to Israel Always for a particular purpose or project (such as Operation LifeShield transportable bomb shelters) we will combine all donations received for that particular purpose or project and present one sizable check rather than multiple smaller donations.
Below is a partial list of programs and projects to which Israel Always has provided financial assistance.
OPERATION LIFESHIELD – providing transportable bomb shelters to areas of need in Israel. While it may not make the news each day, the Palestinians and other radical Muslims are continuing to hurl rockets and bombs into Israel terrorizing, killing and maiming innocent civilians which, unfortunately, means there is still a need for these bomb shelters. No where else in the world is a bomb shelter considered essential equipment for children’s playgrounds. To date we have saturated the areas in and around Sderot and Sha’ar Hanagev and are now focusing on Ashkelon and areas in the north. At the entrance to each shelter a plaque is affixed which bears the name(s) of the person(s) or organization(s) responsible for having purchased that shelter or it may simply say, “From your Christian friends of Israel Always.”
THE JERUSALEM CENTER FOR AID – founded by Rabbi Chaim Miller, this organization, through its all volunteer staff, provides special programs and services to severely handicapped children and their families.
THE INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN EMBASSY JERUSALEM – is an organization which operates in the same professional manner as a government embassy except that it is operated on behalf of Christians from around the world. The ICEJ helps meet a myriad of needs in Israel to include providing financial assistance to survivors of the Holocaust; many of whom live at or below the poverty level. The ICEJ is also the producer of Front Page Jerusalem Global Radio; an international radio broadcast founded by Earl Cox for the purpose of making the truth about Israel known to the world in an effort to combat anti-Israel mainstream media biases.
YEMIN ORDE YOUTH VILLAGE – is located in the north of Israel in the beautiful mountains of Carmel. Yemin Orde Wingate Youth Village honors the memory of its founder, Major General Orde Charles Wingate, who was a Christian British army officer and ardent supporter of the Jewish cause in Palestine. Yemin Orde Youth Village has a reputation for growing up children who become fully integrated contributing members of Israeli society. Yemin Orde’s first residents were a few dozen Holocaust orphans. Over the years, the Village has welcomed refugees and immigrants from Iran, North Africa, India, Yemen and Eastern Europe. Today, most of the children hail from places such as the former Soviet Union, Ethiopia, and Brazil. About half of the population comes from dysfunctional homes which are unable or unwilling to provide proper care, nourishment and nurturing. Many of the children at Yemin Orde are orphans with no known family.
A WARM HOME FOR EVERY SOLDIER – this unique program makes certain that on weekends and holidays when all but the most essential Israeli military bases close down, each soldier who is without family in Israel has a warm place to stay and nourishing, satisfying meals to enjoy. When Israeli bases close for holidays and weekends, soldiers are expected to vacate the premises and spend these off days with family and friends. Those without family and friends must fend for themselves and IDF soldiers do not earn much of a salary. For this reason, Ariela Shmida-Doron, owner of the Jerusalem Gold Hotel, has opened her doors and her heart to take in as many “homeless” soldiers as space will permit. Thank you, Ariela, for all you do quietly and behind the scenes to help make life for others a little bit happier.
