Jewish-Christian Organization Gives Financial Aid to Ukrainian Jews

FSWC Reports:


Since the outbreak of the recent violence in Ukraine, the government has experienced severe turmoil and chaos. The majority of government institutions are unable to function normally. Government stipends to assist the elderly and other payments have been frozen and the police forces disbanded. 

Ukraine has one of the largest, and at the same time one of the poorest, Jewish communities in the world. Out of approximately 300,000 Jews living in Ukraine, tens of thousands qualify as elderly or families in need. The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews provides assistance to this community, as it does to many other communities in the former Soviet Union, both in routine situations and in states of emergency.
