August Tzedakah Box Supports Yad Riva

Yad Riva: An NGO that offers advice to elderly people in need of guidance concerning their legal rights.

Our August tzedakah donations will benefit Yad Riva, the legal arm of Yad Sarah. Yad Sarah, the largest volunteer-staffed organization in Israel, provides a vital array of compassionate health and home care services for the elderly and disabled, including its extensive Lending Service for medical equipment. Yad Riva provides free legal assistance to all elders in Israel, who face problems including elder abuse, financial exploitation, disability, property concerns, family conflict and access to benefits such as health care and adequate housing. Legal assistance is provided to the homebound in their own homes or in assisted living facilities, with translation into several languages, including Russian, Amharic, Arabic and English. By providing services at no cost to the client, Yad Riva ensures that this vulnerable population has equal access to protection under the law.  Yad Riva services are conducted by a network of over 100 volunteers (primarily attorneys) across 25 cities in Israel, reaching thousands of people each year. A telephone hotline for older people and their advocates offers quick responses to questions about rights of the elderly.
Your generous donations will help needy elders realize their rights, reclaim their self-respect, and overcome abusive situations. Learn more about Yad Riva.
