Furniture and Household Goods Mean Hope
Arriving to make a new life in a country with just a couple of suitcases is a challenge for anyone, let alone if you barely speak the language and have no means of income. It is expected that around 25,000 migrants will have arrived to live in Israel in 2014, a significant increase compared with 2013.
The government helps newcomers by providing apartments, but the migrants lack the funds to buy basic furniture and household equipment, needing to use all their money just to survive.
A project in Israel receives containers from all around the world and distributes furniture and household goods to people like these migrants, as well as other organisations who work for the benefit of the underprivileged in the country. Crossroads is excited to ship another container to support the work.
