1 in 4 Holocaust Survivors in Israel live in poverty. Now with COVID-19, they are feeling more isolated than ever before.

Dimona is home to hundreds of Holocaust Survivors. Unfortunately, many of them live below the poverty line and are unable to afford basic expenses like buying food.

Meir Panim has made it its priority to set up a Day Center specifically for Holocaust survivors so they have a place to receive daily meals and have the opportunity to socialize with friends through a variety of special activities. For many, the Dimona Holocaust Survivor Day Center has become a second home.

Directed by a Social Worker, the program supports the needs of the survivors as they age, providing not only nourishment for their bodies but also their souls. An array of activities like holiday celebrations, bingo, trips and even manicures and pedicures are offered. Through this center, Meir Panim ensures that these survivors, who have been through so much in their lives, can enjoy each day in a meaningful way and have the opportunity to age with care and dignity.

Sadly, due to COVID-19, and the danger it presents to the elderly, all operations at the Holocaust Survivor Day Center have been suspended. However, Meir Panim continues to support the Holocaust survivors throughout the country with Meals-on-Wheels deliveries and daily phone calls to check on each member of the group. 

As coronavirus cases in Israel continue to rise and the country remains under lockdown, the elderly, including Holocaust survivors, are at high risk. Help Meir Panim deliver Meals-on-Wheels to the homebound and elderly so they don’t have to risk their lives leaving their homes.
