When we started our emergency campaign ‘Meals on Wheels’ in the middle of March, we thought it would be something temporary, but time after time the measures to combat the coronavirus in Ukraine were extended. Initially they were extended until 22 June, then until the end of July and recently the measures were extended until the end of August.
Therefore, we will continue this campaign, which was received with immense gratitude by Jewish elderly and Holocaust survivors. They see that we are not abandoning them after giving four months of support during these trying times.
The messages from local rabbis and Jewish leaders with whom we are partnering are heartwarming. Every time we hear from the Jewish elderly who are worried about the situation. When we visit them with our meals, this is an answer to their prayer.
