CTVP Provides Financial-aid to the Bereaved Families of the Carmel Fire
Chanukah is usually a joyous time, most especially in Israel. At Chabad Terror Victims Project (CTVP) we try hard to bring the beauty of this very special holiday to thousands of victims in Israel whose lives have been shattered.
This year in particular, there were 43 families in Israel who were in terrible pain, struggling to pull their lives together.
Each of these families had recently lost a loved one in the terrible fires up North and the pain and agony of their losses threatened to overwhelm them. It is to these families, in addition to all those we serve, that Chabad Terror Victims Project (CTVP) is presently providing special aid to help them through this terrible time in their lives.
Our volunteers have gone to spend time with them, bringing love and comfort, a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, and practical help to get them through the days.
Since so many of those killed were the breadwinners in the family, each family has received a special financial aid allotment to help cover food, rent, clothing and other essentials.
