Wizo’s £3.7m fundraising year

Wizo met its increased financial target for its 90th anniversary year, raising a total £3.7 million.

As a result, the UK organisation has been able to expand support for its 100 projects in Israel. These include the renovation of a Jerusalem day care facility and an extension to a Beersheba community centre

UK chair Loraine Warren said: “There can be no greater satisfaction than to see how the quality of life of so many disadvantaged and vulnerable Israelis is being improved through the continuing efforts of Wizo supporters”.
