As Jewish Child’s Day marks its 75th ‘Heritage’ year as the UK’s leading Jewish grant-giving charity, our work has never been more critical.
The cost-of-living crisis is affecting everyone, but in the area of northeast London where David’s family lives, 41% of children live below the poverty line. For children like this – and their families – their situation is now desperate, equating to a massive degree of uncertainty in every aspect of their lives – from where their next meal is coming from to whether or not they’ll be kept warm this winter.
September is, perhaps, the time of greatest need for so many children. Basic school supplies, clothes, nutritious food and a warm home to come home to at the end of each day are a given for so many of us. Yet, for others, like David’s working parents who simply cannot make ends meet, the struggle to provide for their children is all too real.
Today, more than ever, it is essential that Jewish Child’s Day can continue to support the children who need us most.
We would not be able to do this without you. Please give generously and make a Jewish Child’s Day – https://support.jcd.uk.com/donate/
