The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), referred to as ‘the Joint’, is a Jewish relief organization founded in 1914. Another organization the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ), referred to as ‘the Fellowship’, founded in 1983. Both organizations were founded with the same mission of charity, and they partnered to achieve this mission. They well served the mission of charity, and expanded this collaboration to extend support of larger population.
Mission of charity
Every human has a right to live for which fulfilling of basic needs is necessary. A community develops from society that develops from the families living in society. If families are feeble, the effect goes to the community through the society. If a lifetime support is made available for weak families in the community, it is in the interest of families, society and community. The well-served families make a good and developed community. This can be achieved through mission of charity.
IFCJ Food and Medicine Lifeline
The example of expanded support is IFCJ Food and Medicine Lifeline. The mission of this new hand is to serve desperate elderly people in former Soviet Union (FSU) for their critical need of food and medical care. They really need support because there is no one to take care of their needs. Many elderly people of this community still live in tiny apartments in the former Soviet Union. They need support to survive, and this support can bring positive turn in their life. This is an example of true charity. The mission is great and the expansion has successfully moved forward.
A great job of IFCJ
This mission is not questionable because it is a true act of charity. The above discussion shows that the organization is fulfilling the requirements of mission. People also don’t mind to donate for true charity. The IFCJ is doing a great job for the families of FSU. This will not only improve their life but will also improve rating of the organization.
