About

Friends of the Israel Defense Forces transform the lives of the young men and women of IDF through empowering educational, financial, well-being, and cultural initiatives. The Dignity Program eases the burden by providing economic relief for soldiers who are in financial distress through the provision of cash subsidies, basic furniture and home appliances, holiday gift packages, food vouchers, and other assistance to their families. During 2018, FIDF provided approximately $4.2 million for such assistance to about 8,000 soldiers.
