Emergency Fund for the northern Galilee Holocaust Survivors

Emergency Fund for the northern Galilee Holocaust Survivors

During the past eight years, the Galila Foundation has managed an exclusive trust-fund for holocaust and WW2 ghetto survivors living in urban and rural communities across the Galilee region of northern Israel. The trust-fund was created for aiding the holocaust and WW2 ghetto survivors in buying basic necessities they cannot afford including: uninsured medication and treatments, safety equipment for their homes, electric appliances, etc.

The applicants’ requests are processed by the municipality welfare departments’ and\or other volunteer organizations caring for these holocaust survivors, and are referred to the trust-fund’s allocations committee, whose members are all volunteers. The grants are paid directly to the recipient or to the supplier, in an effort to ease the burden of those in need with a minimum of fuss and bureaucracy.
