Jewish Women International

Jewish Women International (JWI) advocates for a safe world for women, children and families. We strive with other organizations to break the cycle of violence through education and action.

In St Louis, JWI originated the Humor Cart Project at Shriner’s Hospital’s Outpatient Clinic. We have interacted with hundreds of children and their families needing a “laugh” and caring attention while awaiting various treatments. 

Most of our fundraising dollars are generated through a long-term gift wrapping project. Recent recipients include Camp Rainbow, which provides free camping experiences to children 4-18 years old who are undergoing treatment for cancer and other blood-related diseases and disorders, and Wings of Hope, a humanitarian group providing health care and transportation for impoverished peoples of the world.

Nationally, JWI raises funds for the Residential Treatment Center in Kyriat Yearim, outside Jerusalem, which serves Israel’s severely disturbed boys and girls.
