An Israeli Initiative: International Good Deeds Day at the UN
Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon and Cyprus’s Ambassador to the UN Ambassador Nicholas Emiliou volunteered at a shelter in New York as part of International Good Deeds Day.
Ambassador Danon noted that “Reaching out and helping those less fortunate is deeply ingrained in the value system of the Jewish people. International Good Deeds Day is a most fitting opportunity to show the true face of Israel as a country committed to making the world a better place.”
The ambassadors volunteered at the Grand Central Neighborhood Social Services shelter. The shelter serves hundreds of homeless clients on a daily basis and works in close partnership with the Jewish communal organizations throughout New York to provide care and assistance in finding housing.
