9 Children and 5 Adults – Two Yazidi Refugee families coming from a camp in Turkey need your financial support. Their first year in Canada will be life altering. Funds are needed to support the sponsoring group in assisting these families with rent, food and living expenses as they learn English, life skills, and a livelihood. Please help us help them – donate what you can today!
Tax Deductible Donations of $20 or more can be made to the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg (please select the option "Operation Ezra Designated for Shaarey Zedek"). Click here or call 204-477-7428 to donate. (Donations under $20 can be made to the Jewish Federation, but a tax receipt will not be issued).
Non-Tax Deductible Contributions of any amount can be made to the Shaarey Zedek's GoFundMe page by clicking here.
(Note: Donations for the Shaarey Zedek Yazidi Rescue Initiative are being collected by the
Jewish Federation of Winnipeg as part of Operation Ezra in order to provide tax deductable receipts. The Jewish Federation of Winnipeg
will issue you a tax receipt and 100% of your contribution for donations of $20 or more - all designated donations will go to the Shaarey Zedek Yazidi Rescue Initiative.)
