Every day in Israel, in a moment of panic and distress, an expectant mother in crisis decides to terminate her pregnancy. Already stretched to her limit economically and psychologically, she fears the future. Distraught and conflicted, pushed to the brink, she sees no other way out. Women with medically at risk pregnancies face difficult decisions as well.  

Just One Life offers another option.   

Just One Life offers expectant mothers a helping hand to guide them through the months of pregnancy and beyond. Just One Life enables and empowers mothers to have the children they so desire. We provide each family financial support to help them through their crisis.

Just One Life is a 501(c)-3 nonprofit organization, whose focus is the Israeli family faced with the dilemma of an untimely or medically at risk pregnancy. When pregnant women are grappling with difficult choices, it is important for them to know that they are not alone, that there is an organization - caring people and dedicated mental health professionals - that they can turn to for assistance.

Just One Life is a social service agency run by a professional and highly committed team of social workers. We provide a safety net and a listening ear to expectant mothers who are confronted with financial, emotional or medical difficulties.
