As Israel gets hit with a summer heatwave, The Fellowship and Israel Electric Corporation join together to help Holocaust survivors pay their electric bills, reports Arutz Sheva:

With record-breaking temperatures in Israel of over 38 / 100 degrees for nearly a month straight, making this one of the hottest summers on record and increasingly dangerous for the elderly community, the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ) has signed an agreement with the Israel Electric Corporation (IEC) to ensure supply for needy Israelis who are unable to pay their own electric bills.

The agreement will establish a fund of 30 million shekel, jointly funded by the two parties. This amount will enable thousands of elderly Israelis and households, many of whom are inhabited by Holocaust survivors, to run air conditioners without concern over their electric bills.
