World Wide Call For 2D Artworks To Benefit Youth Aliyah Rescue Programs. Deadline is September 15, 2019

Since 1934, Hadassah sponsored Youth Aliyah programs have given over 300,000 young people from 80 lands a new path to a successful future.  Hadassah fundraises for schools, dorms, clubhouses, playgrounds, emotional support systems, counseling, education, art activities, and athletics by promoting Youth Aliyah donation cards and certificates.  The organization is seeking entries for new images and has initiated a Call For Art.  The Rickie Report shares the details here.  We urge you to share this call! Deadline is September 15, 2019.

Nearly a third of Israel’s children live in poverty, according to a 2014 report by the National Council for the Child in Israel. In addition, more than 450,000 children suffer from high-risk situations such as physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, learning disability without access to proper resources, or a lack of basic rights.

The Hadassah-supported Meir Shfeyah, Ramat Hadassah Szold, and Hadassah Neurim Youth Aliyah Villages serve students who have been unsuccessful in other educational frameworks and are at risk of being abandoned to the streets.  Young immigrants and at-risk native Israelis receive not only shelter and food, but counseling, education, and other supportive services in our youth villages. From Hebrew-language lessons and classes on Jewish heritage to athletics and art, Youth Aliyah students receive the help and attention they need to develop into productive members of Israeli society.

Youth Aliyah Child Rescue continues to play a role in the absorption of young newcomers to Israel, particularly from the former Soviet Union and Africa. In addition, the organization offers a second chance to Israeli youth who have been designated ‘at risk’ by child care authorities.  Children in the care of Youth Aliyah are housed in five youth residential villages in Israel. The villages include schools, dorms, clubhouses and playgrounds, and offer emotional support, education, developmental training and extra-curricular activity.

The children come from a wide variety of backgrounds, and often have serious emotional, psychological and behavioral difficulties. Many come from disadvantaged, low income or dysfunctional families, very often single-parent families. They are often at risk because of poverty, neglect, domestic violence, sexual abuse, drug or alcohol abuse, mental illness, homelessness or delinquent behaviour. Other children suffer from cancer and need respite care, while others come from families that have been victims of terror.

Place of Hope is a unique faith-based, state-licensed child welfare organization providing family-style foster care; family outreach and intervention; maternity care; safety for victims of domestic minor sex trafficking; transitional housing and support services; adoption and foster care recruitment and support; and hope and healing opportunities for children and families who have been traumatized by abuse and neglect throughout our region.

The Rickie Report spoke with Sarah Anne Livoti about Place of Hope.  It is hard to imagine this large and extensive organization grew out of the desire of Christ Fellowship Church to reach out and help just one child.  While their program is faith-based, one does not need to be a believer to get involved.

We noticed that at “Seven Stars”, craft projects are a regular part of the routine.  Sarah was excited at the idea of local artists volunteering a few hours of their time to feature a craft or art project for a group of children.  She stressed that this does not have to be a long-term commitment  (though Place of Hope welcomes those as well).

Since the children at Place of Hope range in 5 to 18 years of age, their needs vary.  Experiencing art with a community-cased artist would give them a new, inspiring experience. In addition, volunteers can speak about how to open a bank account, how to register to vote or share a beneficial skill that will make a difference in the lives for their future.  Sharing information about your career can ignite a spark that will take a child further into a positive life situation.

When asked about direct donations, Sarah referred to the exciting online auction being spearheaded by Evelyn Ortiz Smykla and Jonathon Ortiz-Smykla of OSGS Gallery.  Offers of art materials are always welcome and they are most welcome with someone to lead an activity.
