Humanitarian Aid Report
by Avi T., Associate Pastor, Tents of Mercy Network
Our humanitarian aid mandate is not only to help the poor, but also to provide practical assistance to those affected by national crisis, such as the recent war. Here are some of the projects we are currently involved in:
High Holidays Outreach & Monthly Food Distribution
Food bags in warehouse
Family Support Center
This is another project that is an on-going enrichment as opposed to a one-time assistance. We were requested to partner with the city of Kiryat Yam to create a parent-child counseling center. The purpose of this facility is to provide a place where at-risk children and their parents can receive guidance, support, and counseling. Our part began by physically cleaning, renovating the space, decorating the interior (with assistance from members of Tents of Mercy's community and volunteers from abroad) and providing furnishings from our used furniture warehouse. The center is called "An Oasis - Preparing the way for Parents and Children". The program has begun and we are in the midst of continuing further renovations since a major leak was recently detected. The repair will cost approximately $5000 and we are seeking to help them. The vision of this center is very close to our hearts as well as yours. What an opportunity!
Financial Assistance toward Essential Needs

Financial Aid for Professional Training and Re-training
It is very important to us to assist not only those who are in dire need but also those who are striving to improve their socioeconomic status. Often the poor get stuck in a cycle of need, and we are excited to see people break out of that cycle, by assisting them to get the necessary training. We have witnessed the fruit of this work, where recipients have gone from cleaning and menial jobs to professional and better-paying positions. These are the same people who are then able to help others and give back to the community.
In conclusion, we would like to express our heart-felt appreciation for your partnership in all these endeavors. We are humbled by the fact that we have received mercy from the Merciful One and in turn are able to give to others. May His likeness be engraved in all that we do, showing His Love and Glory among His people.
Wishing you a season of refreshment and revival.
