(fjc.ru) The Shaarei Tsedek Charity Center in Moscow successfully completed a humanitarian aid program that distributed children's shoes to many of the community’s most needy children. The sponsor of this project was the Fellowship Foundation, headed by Rabbi Yehiel Eckstein and also known as the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews.
Parents were thrilled to find shoes and sandals for their children, and were able to choose from ten different styles. The high quality footwear is made of natural materials by Bambini, a well-known Russian company. All of the shoes are sturdy and fitted with insoles.
The fact that beneficiaries could obtain shoes covering several seasons was a relief to parents of growing children. The shoe sizes ranged from toddlers to teenagers.
Parents of the children expressed tremendous gratitude for the care demonstrated by the Fellowship Foundation, whose ongoing support has been helping Moscow families and individuals pull through these very difficult financial times.
