First Month of War, Helping Ukrainian Refugees in Moldova


About Ezra

The work of Ezra International began in 1995 in Ukraine in direct response to a vision God gave American businessman, Mel Hoelzle. The Jewish people had been free to leave the Soviet Union after its collapse in 1991 but many were held back to a wall of poverty – not having the money to pay for their trips to the Israeli Consul or their foreign passports. Ezra started work in Ukraine, but the work has since expanded to 8 other fSU countries, South America and several countries in Europe.



It costs an average of £275 to help one Jewish person home to Israel. A monthly gift of £23.00 will help one person home over one year. However no gift is too small - or too large!! All your donations help in the process of helping Jewish people home and each one is significant. Thank you for your help.
