Thinking of orphans can sometimes trigger a feeling of intense sympathy that we cannot overcome. We think how sad it is that these Jewish orphans have no homes and no one to care for them. This however is not the end of the story.
Many orphans in Israel come to GIOH because they don’t have anywhere else to go. However, this orphanage is not simply a home, a place to stay until they are old enough to go out on their own, it is a place to grow and learn. Thankfully, with donations from people like you, GIOH can run several programs to help these children as they grow.
Some of the programs run at this orphanage include a daycare center for those children aged three to six, a complete and well-rounded education from elementary school to high school in vocational classes and the arts, and extended day care facilities that tend not only to the educational needs of the children but to their medical and financial needs as well.
The program doesn’t end with orphans in Israel but extends to those children recently immigrated from other, less privileged countries. GIOH helps them to adjust to their new surroundings using bilingual teachers.
