Aid for Life, established in 2007, is the only program in Israel to offer holistic and immediate aid packages to impoverished Holocaust survivors that targets their nutritional, medical, physical, social, and emotional needs so that they may live out their days with dignity. Aid for Life serves 1,200 Survivors annually, at 25 locations across Israel. Support for this program is in a critical junction, as funding from international /governmental allocations is coming to an end. Latet has undertaken a strategy to diversify and expand its funding base which includes broadening awareness about this critical program on which Holocaust survivors rely for sustenance and dignity. As the average age of the survivors in the program is 89 years old, we only have a small window of opportunities to create a change.
Our goal is to increase the number of holocaust survivors participating the program from 1,200 to 1,500. The cost of a holistic aid package for a holocaust survivor is only $1,500 per year.
Latet was established in 1996, in order to reduce poverty in Israel, for a better and just society, by providing assistance to needy populations, mobilizing Israeli society towards mutual responsibility, and leading change in national priorities. Latet is a non profit, non partisan, independent umbrella organization for 180 local food distribution NGO's, serving 60,000 families in 105 cities in all sectors of Israel society, who benefit from its large network of strategic partners. Additionally, Latet operates five innovative and unique programs with its professional staff and over 16,000 volunteers annually mobilized. Every year, Latet launches nationwide campaign raising awareness on the reality of poverty in Israel. Whether through memorable displays on Rabin Square or live TV show with Master chef, Latet has always found creative avenues to move the Israeli public and call the national leadership to take responsibility.
In less than twenty years, Latet has become one of Israel's leading humanitarian aid organization and key player on the issue of poverty.
