The Shelters for Israel Latet/Aid for Life Holocaust Survivors Assistance Project in Northern Israel
There are about 200,000 Holocaust survivors in Israel, of which a quarter live below the poverty line.
Shelters for Israel has chosen to significantly bolster Latet’s Aid for Life program in Northern Israel, based in Afula, in order to quickly help many more struggling Holocaust survivors inIsrael. We are impressed by Latet’s
volunteers, participation of local businesses, and their overall organization and approach.
A Latet volunteer visits each survivor every week, and a nutritious food package is delivered every month to their homes. Latet volunteers also perform needed home repairs and modifications, such as wheelchair
accessible showers and doors.
Latet immediately addresses urgent needs such as eye glasses,
hearing aids, dental treatments and other necessary supplies and medical services – all in-home, for free, by medical professionals.
Shelters for Israel has made a one year commitment that will address the substantial needs of at least 100 survivors in Northern Israel, and with
additional support from you we look forward to extending that
commitment and benefitting more survivors to afford them the dignity they deserve in their remaining years.
