New Campaign to Help the Abayudaya and the Hadassah School in Uganda

The Seaboard Region of the Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs (FJMC) established a fund to assist the Abayudaya Jews of Uganda during the COVID-19 lockdown and in the aftermath of 2022 flooding. Now, we are partnering with the Abayudaya Men’s Club to help the Hadassah Primary School as it, too, re-emerges from the pandemic. 100% of all funds raised will go directly to the school to support its drive to make capital improvements.
