Making a Difference in Ukraine

editor - 18 March 2019

The harsh Ukrainian winters are tough times for the poor and elderly Jewish people in Ukraine. During the long winter, the food parcels of Koen Carlier and his team were a basic necessity. Thanks to your support we were able to distribute 7050 food parcels so far.

A problem for most elderly Jewish people are the housing costs that went up thirty per cent since November last year. So with an average pension between 50 and 70 euros per month, more than half is spent on housing costs. You can imagine that our food parcels are a big help.

We will continue our food parcel distribution in the coming months, and we plan a special action during Pesach! We also sent out teams to visit the elderly lonely Jewish people, many of them Holocaust survivors and listen to their story.

We often hear: ‘Thank you for not forgetting us.’


Recently 2,000 food parcels were packed and distributed. Watch the slideshow below:

One food parcel costs €10 or US $12. On behalf of the Jewish Community we thank you for your support!
