The Coronavirus has left thousands of Holocaust survivors in Israel vulnerable as never before. So many of them have been forgotten by the authorities and are calling out for help.
On this Yom Hashoah, the question is: will we answer the call?
Over the past 4 years, the Adopt a Holocaust Survivor program has, thanks to your monthly donations, hand-delivered weekly food baskets to hundreds of Holocaust Survivors living in Israel. But the people that we met every day during the Coronavirus crisis were hungry not only for food, but for company. David, an 87-year-old survivor, had not left his home in months, and was desperate for our volunteers to stay and speak with him. Quickly, we understood that for survivors, loneliness and social isolation can be as dangerous as the virus itself.
So, thanks to the support of donors like you, we have hired a team of social workers and therapists, and recruited dozens of volunteers, to call and safely visit over 300 Holocaust survivors every week to make sure that they know that they are loved and are not alone.
With your support, we can continue our campaign to help the 50,000 Holocaust survivors who live in poverty in Israel. Your one-time or recurring donation will allow us to deliver weekly food baskets to survivors, and provide emotional health services to survivors who continue to live isolated during the Coronavirus crisis.
Every month, you’ll receive an update from the survivors that we help so that you can see how your donation is making a difference.
Your help has never been more important, and can help change the life of a Holocaust survivor. Please adopt a survivor today and make a difference!
