Robin Myers Walks for World Jewish Relief

Robin walks laps of her garden for World Jewish Relief

World Jewish Relief and I personally thank you for your generosity and encouragement as I continue for the good of the cause to walk round my garden 12 laps a day, rain or shine. In 5 weeks I have travelled the equivalent of 55 miles. With so many calls on our purses in these days of lockdown your donations to World Jewish Relief are particularly appreciated.
Thank you all so much.

UPDATE: Thank you so much for your generosity! I am now on lap 400, and would love to reach £5,000 for World Jewish Relief.
UPDATE: Thank you so much for all of your kind support. I reached my first target so much faster than I could have hoped – £2,000 in less than a week! World Jewish Relief does such wonderful work, and I know I can keep walking – so, as of today (5th May), I am upping my goal to 300 laps (about 23 miles), and alongside that my target to £4,000.
Thank you so much for all of your generous support.

Inspired by Captain Tom Moore's efforts, I have decided to walk for World Jewish Relief - an international humanitarian agency that is working within and beyond the Jewish community to support the most deprived people worldwide.

Being old myself, I feel very much for the older people World Jewish Relief supports across eastern Europe. Many of them are very lonely and live in abject poverty in tiny ex-Soviet apartments in need of repair and refurbishment. World Jewish Relief provides this. We ourselves are now experiencing the hardship of isolation but this is nothing compared with those who have no one for company and no way of connecting with the outside world.

World Jewish Relief also trains young people in business skills which enables them to open small businesses which will support themselves and their families.

    I take my hat off to you Robin - what a wonderful thing to undertake at your age. I am not as old as you but I cannot walk well due to chronic arthritis so you walk for those of us who are unable to. Good luck and I hope you will reach your target.

    Robin, I am a lifelong friend of Barbara Laning Fitzpatrick, and I applaud your efforts. My mother-in-law, age 93 and now living in Israel, had resided in a Soviet-style apartment in Slovakia until she was able to make aliyah. People of her age who have survived the Holocaust and the upheaval in their countries since then deserve to know that we are still thinking of them, and cherishing them. Kol hakavod, and may you enjoy a lovely and meaningful birthday.
