Quilts for Children in Israel

Members of the Georgia-based non-profit Maasay Yahdev, which serves those in need in Israel, will be taking another trip to Israel in late October and will be taking 300 quilts provided by QBB.  These quilts will be donated to children at these facilities:

  • Beit Singer is a home and school for children who have been abused and/or orphaned.
  • Neve Michael Children’s Village has two programs that we will be providing quilts to:  The Children’s Emergency Crisis Center and the Teenage Girls Emergency Crisis Center which house children and teenage girls who have been removed from their homes because of abuse.
  • Lev Lalev Girls Orphanage and Children’s Home, located in Netanya, Israel, provides orphaned and disadvantaged girls from all over Israel with a safe, warm, and loving Home.
  • Bet Elizraki Children’s Home, which houses children who have been removed from their homes by welfare officials because of physical or verbal abuse or neglect, or because of alcohol/drug or other dysfunction in their families.

Here are just a few photos of the 300 quilts sent for these initiatives in Israel.  Enjoy!
