Covid 19: HRH The Prince of Wales writes to World Jewish Relief

We are deeply moved to receive this letter from our Patron, HRH The Prince of Wales, showing his continued support for us and the vulnerable people we support as we face the challenges of Covid-19.


Full text of the letter reads:

Clarence House

31st March, 2020

To Everyone at World Jewish Relief,

As we all face an unprecedented period of difficulty, disruption and intense anxiety caused by the current coronavirus crisis, I particularly wanted to write and say how much I am thinking of everyone involved with World Jewish Relief as you struggle to deal with the huge challenges that have arisen in your lives.

As your Patron, I have nothing but the greatest sympathy for the predicament you face and the many difficult decisions and circumstances that have to be managed.  Above all, I am certain you will be doing your utmost to maintain the essential elements of the care and service you provide to so many vulnerable people who depend upon you, and of which I am so immensely proud as your Patron.  I want you to know, therefore, that I can well imagine the appalling pressures you have suddenly and unexpectedly been put under and that my heart goes out to you and your families during the coming weeks and months of such hideous uncertainty.
