We support the world’s poorest Jewish communities and reach beyond our own. Working with trusted local organisations, we provide a powerful and practical response to poverty in three key areas of work.
We give people the chance to support their families by helping them to find work, earn an income, become self-reliant and escape poverty.
We support ageing populations who have lived through the Holocaust and communism, meeting their emotional and physical needs.
With Britain’s Jewish community behind us, we respond to major disasters, providing emergency relief and longer-term recovery efforts.
Last year, World Jewish Relief supported:
- 7,086 people participated in our employment programmes, giving them a better chance to obtain work and break the cycle of poverty.
- We supported 8,061 older people with practical assistance such as food and medicine and helped provide companionship.
- In total, our projects positively impacted over 42,899 individuals across 19 countries.
