Claims Conference to support survivors in Sderot


The Claims Conference will give $550,000 to help assist Holocaust survivors living in and near Sderot, the organization announced this week.

The money will help physically reinforce two day centers that the Claims Conference, the clearinghouse for Holocaust reparation funds, built for the elderly in the area, a frequent target for short range rudimentary rockets launched by Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip.

Some $250,000 will go to help Nazi victims join supportive communities in nearby Otef Shalom; and $50,000 will help establish a Sderot branch of AMCHA, the National Israeli Center for Psychological Support of Nazi Victims.
