Holocaust Survivors – Needing Winter Jackets and Food?

Grocery bags for Holocaust Survivors

It’s amazing to think that Holocaust Survivors can be hungry.  Unbelievable!  So many are living in poverty.

With International Holocaust Memorial Day this week on Wednesday, January 27, in honor of struggling Holocaust Survivors here in Israel, food bags have been prepared.  Help with food is always the number one need . . . and second is personal contact to turn back the loneliness.  

Canned vegetables

The food bags contain various items like canned vegetables, pasta, tomato paste, cooking oil and cookies.  These were obtained at warehouse prices for personal delivery to individual Holocaust Survivors.  A personal visit has either already taken place, or is in process.  (There’s a lot of food bags, so there will be a lot of visits.)

In January Israel always turns super cold and this year is no exception.

At this time of year, Israel Relief Aid holds its Winter Warm Campaign.  Nothing like having that jacket ready for an unexpected downpour, or cold temperatures.

You can still join in on this project, deliveries are in process.  Thank you to all those who have given this month to keep the Israeli nation clothed and fed!
