This winter we need to raise $50,000 for babies and toddlers that need immediate protection in Orr Shalom’s emergency foster families.

These babies have been abandoned, orphaned or have suffered horrific abuse and neglect by their parents. Each child comes to us out of crisis and trauma, often with just the clothes and diaper they are wearing.

Eight Orr Shalom foster families, in cooperation with the Ministry of Social Affairs, welcome these children, at any time, 24 hours a day. They give them warmth, love and hugs until a permanent family is found. Help us protect Israel’s youngest children.
 

Ella's Story


An eight-month old baby girl, Ella, was left at a neighbor's house by her mother who dropped her off "for a few minutes". Ella's mother, an abusive drug-addict, never returned and abandoned her baby. The neighbor called the local welfare services who placed little Ella in an Orr Shalom Emergency Foster Home where she received love, care and support from her devoted emergency foster parents and the National Service girl until a permanent Orr Shalom foster home was found for her. Although she was abandoned by her birth mother, Orr Shalom ensured that Ella was cared for and cherished, and never left alone.
