There are about 6500 Eritrean women in Israel, caught between a rock and a hard place: they left their war torn home in search of a better life in Israel, yet the Israeli government makes it near impossible to apply for refugee status.  Pregnant women are often fired, illegally, from their black market, low-wage jobs, making life even more difficult for them. Our grant to Kav LaOved (staff pictured with us, above) enables them to serve this extremely vulnerable group.
