Due to Covid-19, many impoverished Holocaust survivors experience an extended stay in deficient and insecure homes.
MORE THAN EVER, SUPPORT URGENT HOME REPAIRS THE SURVIVORS CAN'T AFFORD
1 in 4 Holocaust survivors in Israel lives in poverty.
As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, our elders spend all their time at home, mostly alone, in run-down apartments and they have nobody to turn to. The need to eliminate all safety hazards and obstacles relating to mobility, safety and comfort has grown and dozens of survivors are waiting for urgent assistance.
Latet is the only organization in Israel providing Holocaust survivors in need with a complete aid package, including monthly food boxes, social support and an Emergency Fund for crucial needs. Since 2013, Latet has carried out more than 1,200 home repairs to increase the survivors' quality of life, at no cost to them.
Thanks to you (every dollar counts!), we'll be able to assist with:
• Urgent plumbing issues
• Adjusting toilets and showers for the survivors with mobility difficulties
• Electricity malfunctions
• Safety equipment and basic household products, including appliances
• Floor repairs and restorations
• Reparation and restoration of walls after water damage
• Air conditioning installation
• Supply and assembly of nursing equipment
Everyday, 40 Holocaust survivors die.
Let's make sure they spend their last days in decent conditions. Donate now.
Latet has taken extensive measures to make sure that the repairs and renovations are done under strict regulations by the Ministry of Health. By providing the workers with hazmat suits, masks and gloves we have been able to continue our home repairs without endangering the health of the survivors.
