Save a Life in Israel Today!
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 helps relieve burdens before and after the baby arrives. The needs of each family are evaluated by our staff of professional social workers to determine what we can do to help. Depending on the individual plan, a family will receive a monthly subsidy and counseling to relieve its stress. Most important, this mother now has an opportunity to spend these months preparing emotionally and financially to receive the new addition to her family.
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’s team of professional social workers combined with a financial assist from our dedicated supporters provide the opportunity for our clients to be empowered to make critical future-focused decisions for themselves and their families with support, clarity, and confidence.
