Life in Israel is always a challenge, but for the elderly, sick, and lonely, especially those without family here, it can be especially difficult.

The aim of this program is to reach out to the elderly or homebound, and offer companionship and support by phone or home visits.

Sometimes just having someone to listen can make a difference!!

We at AACI have begun to revive this most important program.
