We launched our It’s a Good Day Campaign.  Every day, even in these challenging times, can be a good day!

Due to the Covid-19 global pandemic, here at JCD HQ, we issued some emergency grants.  We are so proud to have supported Rachashei Lev with an emergency grant for personal, protective equipment.

Rachashei Lev is working non-stop every single day, to ease the suffering of cancer stricken children and their families in the hope of making each day a little easier.

Executive Director, Anthea Jackson and Natasha Brookner, Grants Manager spent 3 days travelling across Israel at the beginning of the month on a whistle-stop tour of organisations who Jewish Child’s Day currently supports or are looking for our support.

The trip is extremely rewarding to see the benefits of the grants that are awarded.  Anthea and Natasha were both humbled by so many children that desperately need our help – be it something as simple as a hot meal, a fresh start or medical assistance.

Our Chanukah appeal landed….  Missing breakfast before school nearly cost Uri his education, Shira her friends and Tamar her role as Class Monitor. Jewish Child’s Day delivered food when they needed it most. Following the arrival of Jewish Child’s Day’s sponsored breakfast clubs in their schools, the improvements in each child were immediate. The difference that a nutritious breakfast can make to a child’s day is huge.

Thank you so much to everyone who came and supported our hilarious Comedy Night last night.  With over 100 people attending we raised over £6,000 in support of Jewish Child’s Day. The funds raised will be going towards a project in Israel which provides holistic treatments for children fighting cancer; working in partnership with each child’s specific medical needs and treatment plan.

In our fast-paced, highly pressured society, we know the mental health and wellbeing of our young people is a hugely important issue and one we must try our best to protect. For some children, such as Ayelet, who you can read about in the enclosed leaflet, typical teenage issues can be compounded by a difficult home situation.  To read more, click here…
