GAiN Sponsorship Program

Thirteen years ago, Helping Hand Coalition partnered with GAiN (Global Aid Network), an international organization established in Germany by Klaus and Claudia Dewald, to aid survivors of the Holocaust and World War II veterans throughout the Land of Israel. Pairing a German individual or family, mostly Christians who have a heart for the Jewish people, with those who were affected by the events of the Holocaust, the GAiN Sponsorship Program is a project that has built a bridge between Germany and Israel. Assisting more than 350 people, the program has continued to grow over the years, sparking joy and gratitude in the lives of both the survivors and sponsors.
