Their words are haunting. “We want someone to care about us—to talk to us and ask about our day.” All too often, those who survived Nazi cruelty no longer have any connection with family members. Many of these people—once fighters in the wars that established the Jewish state—have reached an age where they desperately need community interaction. But there’s no one to take care of them. Instead, their lives are marked by loneliness and isolation, which robs them of a sense of purpose and a desire to live.
Thanks to the compassion and generosity of our partners, we are able to organize social events for the Holocaust survivors who are living among us—events where they are able to sing, dance and eat together. In addition to providing such gatherings, our local teams visit these survivors on a weekly basis, bringing them food, walkers and medicine. Perhaps most importantly, there’s someone to listen to them and their stories.
We all have a need to be connected with and needed by others. Realizing that they are still cherished can be a powerful experience for people in the twilight of their lives.
You can be a blessing to so many Holocaust survivors providing them with regular grocery deliveries from our compassionate field teams, along with opportunities to attend social activities and field trips with others in their community.
