Sickness, poverty, and freezing temperatures are terrible burdens to carry, but nothing is as difficult as the extreme loneliness that many elderly go through in the former Soviet Union. Unable to afford a retirement community, no family to visit them, and no government willing to help, The Fellowship is their only line of hope.
Thanks to friends like you, The Fellowship has programs that meet the basic food, heating fuel, clothing, shelter, and medical needs of the elderly and aging Holocaust survivors around the world.
By partnering with various organizations on the ground in the former Soviet Union, The Fellowship is able to help tens of thousands of needy Jews, including children, impoverished families, the disabled, and the elderly who are desperately trying to make ends meet on little to no income.
