World Jewish Relief: Supporting Moldova Community

The World Jewish Relief is already constant and reliable partner of the Jewish community of Moldova. Recently the next mission from WJR visited Moldova.
Paul Anticoni, WJR Chief Executive Officer tells: “Jewish community in the Great Britain does not know much about Moldova and life in your country. We tell a lot about difficulties in the Eastern Europe to our donors. But it is better to see than to hear. That is why such visit was organized. Now our sponsors can see the real problems and real people who live here and receive assistance. They understand now that without Hesed and NES people could hardly survive especially in the rural settlements of Moldova. But we were surprised with the dignity and fortitude of people in such conditions. This is a good lesson for all of us as well.”

A Current JHI Mission: Pediatric before Geriatric

Every mission of Jewish Healthcare International is in a way special and the last one, which took place on June 16-23, was no exception to the rule. It included 3 doctors: Rodica Goichman, psychiatrist from Israel, originally from the neighboring Romania; Erin Klein, an Occupational Therapist from Toronto (Canada was represented in JHI for the first time) whose grandparents had been from Romania; Steve Kashulsky, another Occupational Therapist having a rehabilitation clinic in New York, originally from Kishinev. For Steve it was an impressive homecoming after 15 years away from Kishinev.
An exception was the fact that it was the 2nd purely pediatric mission, because during the 9 years (over 30 missions) of its presence in the country JHI has mostly been oriented to senior Hesed clients. However, after an extremely fruitful mission that served the NES summer camp for children with special needs a year ago, there was a request to JHI to extend the practice of examining and consulting children. Therefore, the current mission was held in collaboration with NES Jewish Family Service. Over 50 children and their parents received consultation not only in Kishinev, but also in Beltsy and Tiraspol.
