Why We Help
The Survivor Mitzvah Project is the only organization in the world dedicated to providing direct and continuous financial aid to those elderly and forgotten Holocaust Survivors scattered throughout Eastern Europe who are sick, impoverished, isolated
and in urgent need of help.
70% of Holocaust Survivors do not have enough food.
75% of Holocaust Survivors in Ukraine and Belarus suffer from illness due to the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.
75% of Holocaust Survivors cannot afford doctors, medications, or surgeries.
50% of Holocaust Survivors are bedridden or have mobility issues and need home caregivers to shop, cook, bathe, and clean.
80% of Holocaust Survivors helped by The Survivor Mitzvah Project live alone or care for disabled spouse or children.
65% of Holocaust Survivors lost their entire life savings during Perestroika, leaving them destitute.
We are living in a unique moment in time. A tipping point. We are witness to the last generation of Holocaust survivors, and we are the last generation to have the opportunity and the honor to help them. These are people who endured the darkest days of human history, and they are out there right now – still suffering, decades after the War.
Together we can write a more hopeful final chapter to the Holocaust,
one of friendship, kindness and love.
Our Primary Mission is to alleviate the hunger, poverty, and suffering of Holocaust survivors.
Our Secondary Mission is Holocaust Education.
The Survivor Mitzvah Project’s Holocaust Educational Archive is the only one of its kind in the world, focusing on the Holocaust in the East – the untold story of the Holocaust in Eastern Europe.
Over 500 hours of video and tens of thousands of photographs and handwritten testimonies tell the never before told story of the 2.7 million Jewish men, women, and children who died in the Holocaust in the East (nearly half of the 6 million who were killed) and the unimaginable and heroic experiences of those who survived.
These extraordinary stories of heroism and betrayal, love and loss, life and death, will have an impact on Holocaust Education far into the future.
The Survivor Mitzvah Project’s Holocaust Educational Archive contributes to an important dialogue on social justice, tolerance for cultural differences, an appreciation of human commonality, and a warning to confront evil wherever it takes hold.
