Thousands of food baskets and shopping notes have been distributed to Holocaust survivors across the country for the New Year and holidays by Yad Help Israel activists and volunteers, in Mevaseret Zion, in the surrounding communities, and throughout the country.

Are there really hungry people in 2019 in Israel? The answer to this can be seen in the project distributing thousands of food baskets and shopping notes to Holocaust survivors across the country. “We are amazed and hurt by the plight of thousands of Holocaust survivors each time and love to help them otherwise, without our assistance, they will not be able to celebrate Rosh Hashana,” says Luke Gasiorowski, director of Yad Aid for Israel, which is currently distributing free to thousands of survivors. Holocaust food baskets and shopping notes. The campaign, which lasted for about a month and will continue until the eve of the holiday, focused on 25 local authorities across the country, including Mevaseret Zion and Meta Yehuda.  The distribution is coordinated in advance and includes the distribution of thousands of food baskets that include basic essentials, gift packages including wine, shopping notes for food chains, hygiene and toiletries, kitchen utensils and more. Some of the products have recently arrived in Gain (GAiN) containers in Germany and are distributed through thousands of volunteers. Recipients of assistance include needy families, single mothers, as well as single seniors. Over the weekend, 120 young people from Germany, who came to visit and volunteer in Israel led by Luka Heisel, met with three Holocaust survivors, Maria, Boris and Roman, and heard from them about their fascinating life story and how their lives were saved. The three received recognition from the young. The Helping Hand Coalition is an organization that works to help Holocaust survivors across the country through a variety of actions and measures, including a Hot Homes project run by some 25 local authorities and allows Holocaust survivors to enjoy a hot meal and social gathering, import containers with free clothing items distributed to members. Distributing food coupons for Holocaust survivors, documenting Holocaust survivors’ memoirs, calling for medical help, initiating Bar Mitzvah celebrations for Holocaust survivors who did not celebrate it as a child, assisting and participating in the parade, assisting individual soldiers in the IDF in the northern region, and dozens of other projects. Yad Help Israel operates under the media radar for many years from Beit Shalom – a beautiful villa in Caesarea dedicated to the welfare and residence of Holocaust survivors only. The villa serves as a meeting place for dozens of classes, lectures, workshops, classes and study sessions, art shows, music and culture throughout the year to tens of thousands of Holocaust survivors living throughout Israel. The organization was founded by philanthropist and businessman Andre Gasiorowski and his day-to-day management is our son, Luke Gasiorowski, along with a dedicated and dedicated staff working in Caesarea and throughout the country on a variety of projects aimed at helping Holocaust survivors living in Israel. The Yad Aid is an example and exemplary of humble and important social activity, which works in collaboration with many government ministries and aid agencies and aims to help, especially in humanitarian cases, the Holocaust survivors living with and among us. The association recently decided to unveil its activities to enable more Holocaust survivors living across the country to enjoy its diverse service and to improve the quality of life of Holocaust survivors in their old age, both in their residential areas and in visits to the association’s home in Caesarea.
