Housing Renovations for Holocaust Survivors

A joint-project between the Galila Foundation and the “Siyua La’chaim” (aid for life) program of “Latet” organization, over 300 apartments housed by holocaust and WW2 ghetto survivors have been renovated and equipped this year.

As part of this project, Galila staff and volunteers visited and recorded the living conditions of hundreds of holocaust & WW2 ghetto survivors residing at the northern towns of: Carmiel, Safed, Acre, Kiryat Bialik, Kiryat Haim, Kiryat Ata, Kiryat Yam and Shlomi.

Thanks to a three-year commitment by two US based foundations, Galila repaired leaks and electrical faults, installed safety equipment, bought and installed air-conditioning units and refrigerators, heaters, beds, chairs, and all that was necessary to make the survivors’ apartments a place where they can live safely and in dignity.
