Jewish organization called Efrat

Efrat Organisation  EFRAT’s Objectives

Efrat, who since 1977, has saved 75,905 babies from terminations in Israel. 

 

The Coveners League is impressed with a Jewish organization called Efrat, who since 1977, has saved 75,905 babies from terminations in Israel.  The Israeli birth rate is currently quite low, though it is still higher than most other western countries.

The Efrat organization approach has proven to be successful.  Women who register for an abortion are called and asked discreet questions about why they wish to terminate the pregnancy.  If reasons given are financial, the women are told about the Efrat organization and provided with contact details in order to call and see if aid is possible.

Efrat has over 3,000 volunteers throughout Israel ready to help these women.  Once the pregnant woman calls them, they are offered 3 things:

 

  • Monthly food and baby supplies delivered to their door.  These care packages include nappies, formula, canned and dry foods, and are sent for the first year of the baby's life.  In some cases, these packages are sent for the second year of life for those families especially requiring financial aid.
  • Baby equipment. This equipment provides the essentials, including a cot, bassinet, stroller, baby bath and a baby kit, blankets, clothes, and bottles etc.
  • Social and emotional support is also provided, and each recipient is matched with an organization volunteer, to help them throughout their pregnancy, birthing and motherhood journey.
