I want to thank you very much not only for the wonderful desk and food, but for Everything Al! I honestly can’t articulate my feelings upon receiving the desk I asked you for just 3 days ago! Since losing my family and everything else and coming to JHB, leaving everything and everyone I know behind me. You and Yaddies really have been family to me. Your generosity with food, clothing, home goods and financial help (when you were able to assist in that regard) is always given with the love and understanding only family can give and I mean that from the bottom of my heart! Al, on the day we met, you honestly saved my Life and Nashomah and you have continued being my pillar of strength through thick and thin! Thank you Yaddies for the lifeline you provide to hundreds of needy people in our community!
Thank you for a most touching and informative tour of your premises and I want to thank you for the incredible work you are doing in the community. You are saving lives with your love and care and food. I will continue to promote the cause which I think is critically needed and hope to generate further support for your organization. Leave it in my hands! All the best
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I honestly never thought I would get so much! It’s more than I ever imagined! The fish looks stunning. The children will love it especially during the holidays. The sausages look so amazing. My heart was so happy when I arrived home today, and my little boy was cutting his own mango. My family hasn’t had yogurts in I don’t recall how long! So exciting to have food!! Thank you. I am so grateful and so is my family. I honestly never thought I would get the most incredible and generous parcel and we all appreciate it every fiber of our being! It really means the world to me, more than you will ever know. I hope to be able to repay Yad one day. I am so excited to cook my chickens for Shabbos, with such lovely veggies. I can’t wait! It’s really SO special!!!! Never looked forward to Shabbos like this before, I mean it! Thank you my special Al With all my love
