Faces of The Fellowship: Evgeniya and Hasiya

We received the following thank-you letter from the daughter of Hasiya, a 91-year-old Holocaust survivor who receives a monthly supermarket food card as a beneficiary of The Fellowship‘s With Dignity and Fellowship program. Hasiya also received dental treatments through our dental treatment program for Holocaust survivors. Thank you, Fellowship friends, for making this kind of assistance possible!


From the bottom of my heart I’d like to thank The Fellowship and all the good people around the world who donate money to help Holocaust survivors.

Only two months ago I asked if there was a possibility of helping with the cost of dentures for my mother. From the very first moment, Lior, the Fellowship representative, radiated such a courteous, serious, and empathetic attitude that I felt I was speaking with a true friend.

Your dedicated representatives guided and accompanied us with patience and a genuine desire to help. Not once did they fail to answer my phone call. Simply amazing!

The way we were able to receive assistance really surprised me. There wasn’t any unnecessary bureaucracy and there wasn’t a need to first pay the dentist with an expectation that The Fellowship would reimburse us. We went straight to the dentist and, amazingly, we received the entire amount he asked for the treatment.

I’m getting emotional just writing this letter, crying with pride that this country has an organization that does good things modestly, without publicity, and with the real desire to help.

With great appreciation and respect,

-Evgeniya (daughter of Hasiya)
