On Wednesday morning, 17 November a few olim (immigrants) left Kiev airport and went to Israel permanently. We picked up families in Chmilnitsky, Vinnitsa the day before for an overnight stay in our shelter in Kiev.
We have now constantly 2 people visiting cities and villages where elderly Jewish people in need and Holocaust survivors live who are on the program. People get different help according to their needs but in general we help the elderly in need with medicines, extra food and hot meals.
