About IFCJ and JDC
You might be familiar with the names American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), a worldwide relief organization and the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ), a philanthropic organization to promote understanding and cooperation between Jews and Christians. These organization have great mission of charity. The cooperation between Jews and Christians has so far been able to raise over million dollars through donations to serve the poor and needy people.
The founding of IFCJ in 1983 had a broad mission to build broad support for the State of Israel. The organization did far more than its main mission. The organization’s new hand is working to provide lifetime food and medicine support to elderly Jews. All people are not settled in their life, and fail to meet their basic needs due to financial weakness. Jews in the former Soviet Union (FSU) are main example of the community that is really needy. They need a support to raise their family and children, and to fulfil their basic needs.
The agenda of charity
The community will never progress when families the community are economically feeble, but IFCJ made an agenda of supporting Jews in the former Soviet Union (FSU). The mission of charity is well served by this organization. The JDC also partnered in this mission of social welfare. This collaboration expanded to extend support of larger population.
