One in five people in Israel live below the poverty line. Holocaust survivors and single-parent families in Eastern Europe struggle to make ends meet on a monthly budget of approximately £64. We know how to help. We know how to deliver.
Our mission is to help vulnerable Jewish people in urgent need by delivering a lifeline of essential goods, restoring dignity.
Anna was born May 1922 in Chisinau, Moldova. In 1942, her village was attacked and Nazi soldiers deported Jewish residents to concentration camps; she escaped by hiding in the field. When the village was liberated, a mass grave was found; Anna’s family were among those who perished. Now 97, Anna struggles with a monthly pension of £56. She is in very poor health, lying at home alone almost all the time. Her pillows need to be changed frequently which she is unable to afford with her small, monthly allowance. Anna thanked J-Aid saying, ‘I haven’t had a new pillow in 28 years. Now I am sleeping like I did when I was a child.’
THE MULTIPLIER EFFECT
£5,000 (the average cost of delivering a truck to the recipients) in funds will deliver £250,000 worth of humanitarian aid (the approximate value of the goods on a 40ft truck).
£1,000 will pay for essential nappies, sanitary & hygiene products with a value of over £81,000
£5,000 will pay for ONE 40’ container filled with clothing, shoes, blankets, toys & school stationery to be delivered to Israel with an approximate value of £250,000
£10,000 will pay for the purchase of urgently needed incontinence pads for Holocaust survivors and the elderly with an approximate value of £375,000
J-AID sources overstocked essential items, which may otherwise be destined for landfill, delivering them to Jewish communities in urgent need, wherever they may be. We use a low-cost model, whereby goods are donated and distributed free of charge through our network of global charity partners.
Our team of two, headed by Rosalind Bluestone, has twenty years’ expertise in humanitarian aid export, meaning we know how to deliver. In the last four years, through our parent charity Goods For Good, we have delivered over £16 million worth of humanitarian aid, saving 1,300 tonnes from landfill, and supporting approximately 2 million people in need.
Our only challenge is funding our core costs. Industry offers us an abundance of overstocked goods. Our logistics partners reach almost anywhere in the world, and we have trusted charity partners wherever we go. However, we need funds for our operational costs, including international logistics. This costs £200,000 per year. We need your help to make this happen.
