Ezrat Chana Baby Fund

 

Ezrat Chana, a Crown Heights based organization providing essentials to needy families with newborns, was founded in 1995 by Rachel Dahan and Yafit Yadger in memory of Rebetzin Chana Pizem ob"m of the Krayot in Israel.

To date it has already helped over 2000 families by providing baby essentials such as a receiving blanket, baby outfits, sleepers, layettes, diapers, wipes and more.

The need for this fund is critical, and has increased due to the deteriorating economy, says Yafit Yadger, founder of the organization. "Many times, the initial call comes from the new mother still recuperating in the hospital, wondering how she will bring the child home and how to provide for him," she says.

"While listening to the requests, sometimes we learn more about the family's needs, which leads to other asisstance, such as support for siblings or clothing for the mother herself," she notes.

Ezrat Chana is a fully tax deductible organization operating under the aegis of Rabbi Lazer Avtzon and the Global Jewish Assistance & Relief Network.
If you have new baby clothing to donate, or know of friends and companies manufacturing or selling new baby items and clothing, or if you know of a newborn child in need, please contact Ezrat Chana at ezratchana@gmail.com.
