  • On behalf of my parents and my siblings, I'd like to thank you for the beautiful kosher pantry you set up at South Nassau Hospital. My mother and sister spent Shabbos with my father and they had a delicious array of foods available and a clean kitchen from which to take them. You can't imagine how it lightens the burden to have the needs of the caregivers considered.
    Yasher Koach!
  • There are no words to express or relief and our thanks for the unbelievable orchestration you arranged to move my grandmother to a hospital that could address her needs. When my grandmother was brought to the hospital, we all went into panic... Seven months earlier my father passed away there, after a medical mishap that took place there. We needed my grandmother OUT! Her doctor was in a different hospital and we were told that if her needs could be addressed here, we could not move her. You gave us hope by telling us that at worst, we could take her out Against Medical Advice (and you told us it sounds scarier than it is). You proceeded to make phone calls behind the scenes and next thing we knew, the hospital of our choice agreed to accept her, give her a bed, and send an ambulance for the transport! The move was successful and my grandmother was discharged about 10 days later. At peoples most trying moments Achiezer offers such support and practical expertise.
    We have tremendous Hakaras Hatov for all you do!
  • Thank you for providing a hospital bed, mattress, and gel for my homebound father.

    Achiezer is an amazing organization
    Yasher Koach for being so involved
  • Words alone cannot express how much gratitude our family has for your organization's constant giving and assistance during Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath. We were so devastated by our homes being destroyed, yet Achiezer found a way to lift our spirits immediately by acting like immediate family... You generously and tirelessly gave so much, not only with financial assistance, but all levels of basic necessities for returning to some normalcy. Immediately, you organized financial assistance, lodging, clothing, shaimos, blanket's, heaters, just to name a few. Anything else that was requested was delivered. You organized guidance and support groups, you made sure our electricity and boilers were fixed immediately. In other words, what didn't you do? Our family received heat last night for the first time since the storm and it was so emotional. Tonight, when Chanuka toys were delivered to our door, I almost cried.
    Thank you so much! Hashem should bless all of you with good health, peace and prosperity
  • I live out of town but the updates Achiezer has been posting is true testament to the immense amount of time, effort, and manpower they have been putting in around the clock since the start of Sandy.
    Yasher Kochachem to Rabbi Bender and his amazing crew. MI K'AMCHA YISROEL!
