The Holocaust Survivor Program is unlike any other program that C4I Australia manages. All other projects have a donation pool from which support is given. There is no direct connection between a donor and a recipient with these programs.

With the Holocaust Survivor Program, our field works on the ground make contact with local Jewish communities through their Rabbi and establish a relationship with them. Once trust is gained, the community provides names of Holocaust Survivors in their community who are eligible for the program. This process can take weeks to months.

There is therefore a difficult balance to be maintained between available Donors and identified Holocaust Survivors. If you have registered your intention to sponsor and no names are available, it means our field works can make confident promises of support to communities, knowing that there are sponsors on standby. Once a name is available for you, your sponsorship will begin. No deductions will be taken from your CC/DC until your sponsorship actually starts.
