New eyeglasses for survivors Bina and Samuel!

Bina and Samuel can finally reconnect with their surroundings

Without good vision, the elderly often feel confused or lost, and this increases their feeling of loneliness. On Monday (July 8), two Holocaust survivors in our program - Bina, 80, and Samuel, 81 - received their much needed eyeglasses thanks to Latet's Emergency Fund. Bina will now be able to read anything she needs and Samuel will finally see from afar. Either way, these glasses will allow them to reconnect with their surroundings.
Latet's Emergency Fund was created to provide medical and paramedical assistance to respond to urgent needs of impoverished Holocaust survivors in Israel. Hundreds of Holocaust survivors can't afford necessities such as eyeglasses, dental care or essential home reparis to ensure their safety. 

We're still in the midst of our fundraiser to get additional support for our Emergency Fund in order to provide urgent medical and paramedical assistance to 80 Holocaust survivors in need. So far, we've raised more than $20,000 in less than 2 weeks!! Please donate and share!
