Paddington Bear and the Holocaust
According to a Survivors’ advocacy group, of Israel’s 161,400 Holocaust survivors, roughly one in three lives in poverty. Though most survivors receive government stipends, it is often not sufficient to meet financial needs especially with soaring costs for rent and expensive medication needed for ailing bodies still suffering trauma inflicted during the Holocaust years. Many depend on food donations organized by Israeli charities and are forced to make heart-breaking choices between paying their rent or buying much needed medication.
Your People My People is honoured to support an amazing ministry in Israel run by a family with a passion to bring hope and dignity to these remaining survivors in their last days. From distributing food vouchers, organising new eye glasses, dental treatments and mobility aids, to running events aimed at pouring love upon these special souls, Helping Hands Coalition is making a huge difference to the lives of Holocaust Survivors in Israel. We have known this family and organisation for many years and have seen first hand the cloud of heaviness lifting from the the Survivors as they experience Helping Hand Coalition's 'Shalom House' events.
