Housing renovation programme in Ukraine
In Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia, thousands of elderly Jewish people, many of whom are survivors of Nazi persecution, live in very deteriorated housing. The residents of these houses are the most vulnerable in their communities : with low incomes, they live in conditions that are often unworthy.
The World Jewish Relief, the humanitarian development agency of the British Jewish community (created to implement the rescue of Jewish children during the Second World War), launched a reparations and renovation programme seven years ago to enable these people to live in safe and dignified conditions.
The Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah is committed in 2019 to this program, for the renovation of housing in the cities of Kharkov, Poltava and Sumy, Ukraine.
