The idea of an orphanage is one of hope. It’s about giving children the kind of environment that they truly need to grow up in, giving them a family life environment and the chance to live a normal life. They need to know that they can grow up to be anything they set out to be and have support backing them.
A Jewish orphanage really is a beacon of positivity, especially in a world where sometimes we lack that. Often we just hear negative things that occur in the world and it’s a shame that we don’t focus more on the good. But when we do, when we talk about how a person can help a child be raised right, how a donation can mean more beds, better food, even a whole new classroom, it gets people motivated. It makes people want to join the cause.
That’s the kind of work GIOH does and that’s why we love to talk about it. We want to get the word out there that caring for these kids isn’t just important, it’s our livelyhood. It’s what we are here to do. And donating to a Jewish orphanage may be the best decision you can make, to keep that hope going.
