The Blue Card Organization:
Of the nearly 3,000 Holocaust survivor households The Blue Card serves, three-quarters are over the age of 76 and nearly 70% live alone. Many of these survivors struggle to afford basic needs, such as adequate food and healthcare; more than half of them fall 200% below the federal poverty line, meaning their income is less than $24,980 annually. Please consider making a donation to support The Blue Card organization which provides direct financial assistance to needy Holocaust survivors.
*Registration is not guaranteed entrance. Must be Olami/Meor alumni and friends, ages 22-30 (or previously involved in Olami/Meor programming.)
