As you are reading this, Holocaust Survivors are alone in freezing homes with no food or medical attention. Join our lifesaving campaign to help them get heat, medicine, and home-care. They are in desperate need.

et Survivors know they have not been forgotten. We can change their world.

By answering this call to action, you will be supporting hundreds of Holocaust Survivors for three winter months.

They have already experienced the darkest days of human history. Show them we care with kindness, generosity, and compassion. Help them survive the brutal winter months. Your donation pays for heat, medicine, nurses, and caregivers.
The Survivor Mitzvah Project [SMP] supports Holocaust survivors by making sure their complex medical and emotional needs are met.

We grant monthly stipends of $150-175 per survivor to meet basic needs: food, medicine, heat, shelter, and caregivers. During Covid-19, these elderly people are in crisis. Cries for help exceed our capacity to support all who are suffering. That’s where you come in.
Our goal is that no Holocaust Survivor will ever be hungry, cold, or neglected again – especially during this unprecedented pandemic emergency. Your immediate help will save lives. Every dollar is lifesaving.

100% of your donation goes directly into the hands of Holocaust survivors in desperate need.
Our modest overhead expenses are covered by SMP’s Board of Directors and other generous individuals, so your generosity will have the greatest impact.
