UJIA telethon raises £140,000 for Israeli children caught up in Gaza conflict

    UJIA fundraisers brought in £140,000 for children in Israel who have been affected by the recent conflict.

    Over 100 volunteers took part in a telethon at the charity’s head office in Camden, north London, on Sunday to raise money for its Children of the South appeal.

    The money will ensure the delivery of hot meals and day camps across the south and north of Israel so that children can continue life as normal amid safety fears.

    David Goldberg, UJIA’s director of fundraising & communications said: “It’s a fantastic testament both to the volunteers themselves who have given up their weekend, and to the incredible work that is being done by our partners in Israel, taking care of children who need help.”

    Rabbi Marc Levene, of Hampstead Garden Suburb, who took part in the fundraiser, said: “Since this conflict started, there’s been a real sense in the community of ‘what can we do?’

    “Today was a real opportunity to channel all that support and empathy and do something meaningful for Israel’s children.”
