Gideon Ben-Ami has an uncanny ability to discover the poorest and most overlooked people hidden in the bustling metropolis.’

Once upon a time, Gideon Ben-Ami brought Israeli musicians to Carnegie Hall in Manhattan. Today he brings fresh food to a shelter for drug-addicted streetwalkers in Tel Aviv.
Watch our friend Gideon Ben Ami in Tel Aviv this morning as he picks up donated diapers from a local mega-pharmacy. The diapers are all new but may have torn packaging or were returned by customers because their babies outgrew that size.
As the second picture shows, Gideon’s van is filled with this expensive and very much needed commodity.
Picture three, taken maybe 30 minutes later, shows the smiling faces of some African refugee kids at a local gan (daycare center) where this valuable donation will be put to very quick use.
It was that simple–1-2-3! A dedicated person, a generous business and some very worthwhile but needy recipients.
