"Ezra Baderech" - Young people volunteer to help seniors
Do good your way, helping the elderly
About half of the elderly live in solitude and need daily assistance with tasks such as house repairs, purchase of food and medicine, etc.
The 'Ezra Badereh' App creates a community support network, to alleviate feelings of loneliness and provide daily help to seniors in need.

“I was recently caught up in the routine of student and private life. When I decided to sign up for a scholarship and volunteer for this project, I didn't expect it to be a scholarship that would improve my year ".
“A month ago I opened the app and saw Yitzhak's request, asking just asked for coffee with someone. When I saw his that, I felt a pang in my heart, I thought about my mother or my great aunt and how far I am from home because of my studies, which does not allow me to give it to them as it should.
After about a week, Yitzhak and I met. He was waiting for me in front of the house, in the street. He cannot see very well and is not steady in his walk and yet he made an effort only because he was excited to meet me. Yitzhak welcomed me into his home and told me that he is an original 'Yerushalmi'. We laughed and talked and the truth is that two hours was not even enough for us. It was an exciting meeting and of course the feeling of having made someone happy is the best feeling ever. "
