Dear friend,

As part of the Jewish Federation of Ottawa's ongoing efforts to keep you informed on what your incredible generosity is accomplishing in our community, here is a Report from Field featuring The Tamir Foundation to explain how your gift to the Emergency Campaign for Community Resilience has helped our most vulnerable.
“Your gift to the Jewish Federation’s Emergency Campaign for Community Resilience has been enormously helpful during these challenging times.

Thanks to your generosity we were able to upgrade our technological capacities, which was essential in providing families with a way to be in touch with their loved ones during the difficult days of lockdown and the related feelings of isolation and loneliness. The ability to stay connected is a veritable lifeline for our Tamir clients and their families. 

We were also able to offer training to families and clients enabling them to use the technology and to continue to participate in online group activities as well as other Jewish community activities. 

We also used the funds to acquire additional recreational equipment, so crucial now during times of isolation, and to update appliances for infection control.

We are extremely thankful and want to share with you that these emergency funds were essential in ensuring the physical and emotional wellbeing of our Tamir clients. Our Tamir clients were able to remain healthy and supported as a result of these emergency funds.

On behalf of the Tamir clients and their families – a huge THANK YOU!"

The impact of your gift is far-reaching, and we are deeply grateful for your support. We are stronger today because donors like yourself cared enough to give.
