About Chasdei Naomi
Chasdei Naomi was founded in 1984 by Yosef Cohen.
He grew up in a needy family in Tel Aviv. Yosef worked as a bus driver for a private company. On many bus trips, Yosef has witnessed poverty. He saw children who had difficulties and had no means. When Yosef saw these sights, memories from his childhood came to him, and he decided to take action.
Yosef turned the bus into a mobile charity organization with the approval of the bus company. He passed between apartments at the end of each working day, collecting donations of food and equipment. Every evening, he would arrange all the ingredients he got in packages and distribute them to needy families.
Yosefs’ activities expanded, his children joined and helped him operate the small association. Over the years, the association has grown! Thousands of volunteers joined the association, collection warehouses have been set up, and donation collection points have been dispersed (Mom, you promised us a chicken for Shabbos). Yosef left his job as a driver and devoted all his time to the organization.
Chasdei Naomi is a vast association with 38 years of activities, serving 130,000 supporters each month through a complete range of volunteers.
