1 IN 4 HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS IN ISRAEL LIVES IN POVERTY.
YOU CAN CHANGE THE LIVES OF 80 SURVIVORS.
For more than 10 years, Latet has been 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 such as:
- dental care
- adult diapers
- hearing devices
- home restorations to ensure survivors’ homes are safe and secure, and more.
Since 2008, Latet's Emergency Fund has provided 14,280 items and renovated 1,550 apartments.
With so many survivors in need, our Emergency Fund is RUNNING OUT.
Hundreds of survivors are waiting for assistance. We've started this fundraiser to provide immediate assistance to 80 survivors.
Thanks to you (every dollar counts!), we'll be able to provide:
- Dental treatments to 25 survivors >> Dental care is very expensive, and, while it is a real necessity, is not a top priority for most survivors living in poverty. Oral damage and pain is often treatable and can reduce a lot of suffering for survivors. 1 dental care = $2,000
- Home restorations to 15 survivors >> The restorations are managed by Latet staff and led by a professional contractor. Whether it is a dysfunctional kitchen or an inaccessible bathtub, the home repairs and renovations ensure the personal safety of the survivors and improve their overall quality of life. 1 home restoration = $1,500 on average
- Glasses to 40 survivors >> Without good vision, the elderly often feel confused or lost, and this increases their feeling of loneliness. This cost provides a home visit from an ophthalmologist, new glasses frames, and prescriptive lenses. 1 pair of glasses = $190
Everyday, 40 Holocaust survivors die.
After being through hell, they need you. Donate now.
