Chevra means "friendship" and our goal is to help Jewish Ukrainian refugees in their time of need. Everyone can participate in this work that is powered by kindness.
As people in the West began to hear of our work, they helped by sending food, clothing and medicine. Most of this help came from people in England, Netherlands, Sweden, Germany and Switzerland. As quickly as aid came in, the amount of people that approached us for help also increased.
Eventually, people in the US and Canada began to send help and others became part of the group of workers. We are actively involved in many countries and go by different names in each country as laws regarding humanitarian organisations vary from country to country.
Chevra is the America entity for our international effort. Some countries are "giving countries" while other countries are "receiving countries." We have been so blessed and are so rich in North America and we have the ability to do much to alleviate the suffering and meet the needs of others. Chevra's work is a way people can make a meaningful impact in the lives of many people in need.
