Who We Help
Today, 174,000 Holocaust survivors
live in Israel
These elderly who miraculously escaped death during the Holocaust are living out their final years in poverty and isolation.
There are over 56,000 Holocaust survivors
living in the former Soviet Union (FSU)
Many Holocaust survivors are in need of support and live solely on meager pensions — having to make the impossible choice every day between buying food and other essentials like lifesaving medicines, clothing, and heat in the winter months.
In Israel, 1 in 3 children live below the poverty line
and their needs are largely left unmet due to the country’s essential focus on defence to protect these same children from attacks and war.
More than 21% of Israelis live below the
poverty line in the country
and spend every day in desperate need of food, medicine, and clothing.
In the FSU 50% of Jewish children live in poverty
and this number is on the rise. They need safe places to live and essentials like hot meals and medical care.
In the FSU 32% of families in Israel live in economic hardship
This is an additional 233,000 families compared to before the COVID-19 pandemic.
32% of elderly Jews (65 years and older) live in poverty in the FSU
They face the biting cold with little relief against frigid elements, and are often isolated from the rest of the world.
More than 91% of elderly in Israel said that their pensions were not enough
to buy the basic necessities for a dignified life as Israel is forced to spend essential funds to protect her borders leaving less to help her most vulnerable citizens.
1 in 3 people in Eastern Europe have anti-Semitic attitudes
Many thousands of Jewish elderly, families, and children do not feel safe in their daily lives or hide their Jewish culture for fear of attacks.
120 million people in South America harbour anti-Semitic attitudes
63% of survey respondents said that, "Jews still talk too much about what happened to them in the Holocaust". We must do all we can to help provide safe passage for Jews living in daily fear to realize their dream of living in their biblical homeland.
