Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu recently committed to improving the welfare of Holocaust survivors living in Israel. This commitment has come about as a direct result of the efforts of Dora Roth, herself a Holocaust survivor, who made an impassioned speech in the Knesset during April, concerning the welfare of survivors.
According to annual reports and surveys, only six percent of Holocaust survivors living in Israel have financial freedom. Over half of the survivors cannot meet monthly living costs. Forty-nine percent have health problems that impact on the quality of their daily lives. Seventy percent need help with daily activities such as shopping and going to doctor’s appointments - and ninety-two percent think the government needs to increase the funds allocated for their welfare.
Israel Today is committed to brightening the lives of these heroic old people.
