Elderly Jews and Holocaust survivors are extremely vulnerable during this pandemic sweeping the world.
This is an extraordinary moment in time that calls for extraordinary measures. We’re packing and providing care packages to ensure that the survivor who is too fragile to leave their home will get the essential needs they need.
The Holocaust Survivors Project of Zdaka center is dedicated to providing financial aid to those elderly and forgotten Jewish Holocaust Survivors scattered throughout Israel who are sick, impoverished, isolated and receive not sufficient financial aid from other organizations.
Their families and communities destroyed by the Nazis, they struggle to survive in their few remaining years, lacking the means to buy even the most basic of human necessities: food, medicine, heat and shelter. Most live alone in harsh conditions. Our project, by bringing help quickly and directly to these survivors, helps ensure that they may live out their last years with some measure of comfort, support and dignity.
Over 25% of Holocaust survivors live in poverty!
Report published ahead of Holocaust Remembrance Day indicates some 192,000 victims of Nazi atrocities remain in Israel on 2020; poll reveals 40% of survivors feel lonely, while half say they are in need of financial aid. read more
Last year 14,800 Holocaust survivors died, making it more important than ever to honor those we have with us.
100% of every donation goes directly into the hands of an elderly Holocaust Survivor.
Although this situation is urgent and dire, this crisis can be totally resolved with financial aid and donations.
Please join this project which saves the lives of Jewish Holocaust survivors.
It is our great hope that these people who have suffered so much already will not be forgotten in their final years. we hope you can help us help them. This matter is urgent as so many of them are in their late 80's and 90's.
Please remember the Holocaust Survivors in Israel when you give tzedakah this year.
