Israel is at war. WIZO is on the ground. Two weeks into the war, this is our impact on Israeli society in times of war. WIZO has always been there, through every war Israel has fought in its short bittersweet 75-year history. As the largest and oldest social service provider in Israel, WIZO immediately mobilizes all of its resources to help wherever needed.
