Elderly Jewish Holocaust victims in Canada, the last of their generation to have endured the horrors of the Nazi genocide, will receive significantly more aid in 2015, announced Julius Berman, President of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference).* In 2015, total Claims Conference allocations to 11 social service agencies in Canada will be USD $18.6 million, nearly triple the USD $6.4 million allocated for 2014, with most of the increase earmarked for homecare, a top social welfare priority for these survivors.

 

 

 

 

 

“All Shoah victims should be able to receive the help and support that they need to live the rest of their lives in dignity, after having endured indescribable suffering in their youth,” said Claims Conference President Julius Berman.

 

 

 

 

 

“This tremendous increase in funding will directly help many survivors, including those who need more help at home than they currently receive as well as those needing care for the first time.” The increase stems from Claims Conference negotiations with Germany, where support for homecare has been an urgent priority for more than a decade JCFS is very pleased to be able to offer this increase in funding. Homecare funded by Claims Conference allocations encompasses a wide variety of services, intrinsic to enabling survivors to remain living in their own homes, in familiar surroundings, affording them a sense of safety, security, comfort and community. This will make a huge difference as survivors will be able to access services to support assistance with meal preparation, accompaniment, respite and household chores

 

 

 

 

 

This remarkable increase in funding will enable Jewish social service agencies, like JEWISH CHILD AND FAMILY SERVICE in Winnipeg, to continue to support those survivors already receiving homecare assistance, as well as survivors who find themselves in need, for the first time, of homecare help. PLEASE SEE THE ACCOMPANYING AD ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE-BAR OF THIS WEBSITE FOR INFORMATION ON HOW TO APPLY *About the Claims Conference.
