You have heard of C4i's successful efforts in bringing the Jewish people home to Israel according to Isaiah 49:22. Yet for many of these new immigrants, adjusting to Israeli culture is extremely difficult, especially if they are coming from impoverished and developing countries.
There are approximately 100,000 Jewish Ethiopian immigrants in Israel. Of these, 72% are living below the poverty line, having arrived in Israel with meager possessions and no education. Of these immigrants, 40% are children.
These children are Israel's future.
C4i Canada is also directing its energies toward helping the new immigrants of Israel, including after-school programs for children where they are educated, fed and aided as they transition into Israeli culture.
By investing in these new immigrants, you are investing in Israel's future.
