Bedouin & Holocaust Survivor Eye-Clinic Outreaches
Helping the blind to see
Recently, we met an impoverished Bedouin tribe consisting of 300 families (1,500 people) here in the Southern Negev Desert in Israel who need your help!
Let me tell you about them:
These people live on pennies a day, yet they believe in working for themselves—not receiving handouts. They long to see their children become educated and hard working, not idle or addicted to the internet and entertainment. Even though they live in traditional Bedouin tents in impoverished villages, they have a vision for educating and bettering themselves in order to be productive members of society.
Here’s how you can help:
The women embroider clothing to help feed their families, and their beautifully detailed work is painstaking and tedious. They’re in desperate need of eyeglasses to help them work more effectively and efficiently.
On July 15th, we’re bringing in an optometrist from the U.S. who will be performing vision tests and providing free eyeglasses to the Bedouin tribe, all in the name of Yeshua-Jesus.
We’re also bringing in a team of Israelis who speak Arabic and Hebrew to share Bible stories with them and pray for them. Based on what we’ve seen in our outreach to other Bedouin Tribes in Israel, they’ll be delighted to let us disciple them with the stories from the Scriptures, even though they are Muslim.
In addition, on July 16th, 17th and 18th, the optometrist and his team will be distributing eyeglasses to Holocaust survivors in our area.
For these eye-clinics we are partnering with Helping Hand Coalition. Since 2005 HHC has provided continuous aid to nearly 80,000 victims of the Holocaust in over 70 cities throughout Israel.
Please make a donation today to help us!
Your U.S. tax-deductible gift will help provide food, lodging and transportation for the outreach team (about 20 people). The Bedouin village is an hour from our headquarters. We’ll be renting a small bus to take us to the clinic outreach site and paying for the team to stay overnight in a local B&B, as many are coming from Northern Israel. We’ll also be subsidizing the cost for the optometrist and his team to stay in the area for the following three days of eye clinics for Holocaust survivors.
We need your help. No donation is too small. Whatever amount you choose to give will help the blind see!
Another way to help is by getting others involved. Please share this campaign with your friends via email and Facebook!
Thanks for your help! We are one Body - one Bride, working together for the furtherance of God's Kingdom on earth!
