How long have you been volunteering in Chasdei Naomi?
Over a year. I worked before Covid-19, and now that i’m unemployed I have time to volunteer more.
What do you do as a volunteer?
I come once every two weeks to pack fruits and vegetables for the families. After we are done packing, we help distribute the food baskets to the families.
How did you find Chasdei Naomi?
My friend sent a message in our mutual Whatsapp group and asked if anyone wanted to volunteer. I joined and immediately fell in love with the team.
Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I am an Olah Chadasha from Ukraine, I made aliyah 5 years ago. I have a 4 year old daughter with special needs. That’s why I didn’t always have time before I was unemployed.

Tell us about your volunteer work at Chasdei Naomi:
It’s my second time volunteering in the Chasdei Naomi branch in Jerusalem – I came with my mechina friends. We have a volunteer day every week and we were looking for a place where we can come volunteer together. Today, we were 20 volunteers here. There is a good vibe, on one hand it’s fun, and on the other – we pack the goods knowing that as soon as we finish, it will all go to families in need.
What do you do when you volunteer?
There are crates with fruit and vegetables. Our job is to fill bags with the goods and organize them for distribution.
We would love if you could tell us about yourself:
I’m 18, from Pardes Chana-Karkur. I love volunteering and try my best to do so in every chance I get. I think that it’s super important. One of the reasons that I came to my mechina is to get to know the Jerusalem society and to be actively involved.
