Survivor in Need

Helping the Holocaust survivor to survive the rest of their precious life.

Tens of thousands of Israeli Holocaust survivors are living in abject poverty, many of those are now in their late eighties, struggling with ill health and trying to survive on meagre pensions and small compensation payments still made to survivors of the Holocaust.

A survey in 2016 found that of the roughly 189,000 Holocaust survivors living in Israel, about 45,000 are in poverty. “These people suffered so much at the beginning of their lives, they shouldn’t have to go through any more suffering at the end of their lives,” The average age of an Israeli Holocaust survivor is 87 and by 2025 almost all of the remaining survivors will probably have passed away.  A 112-year-old Israeli survivor of Auschwitz is now thought to be the world’s oldest man. “Every day about 35 survivors die and we have so little time to try to make up for the injustice they have gone through,” a recent report about survivors published in Israel's Ha’aretz newspaper suggested.

Maskil El-Dal, a United States 501(c)(3) organization reaches out to those who are left behind, by filling in the gap of their survival with supplementing funding of their needs.
