Phase Two: Helping Refugees Cope With a New Normal
Most refugees who fled Ukraine never expected to be away from home for months or longer. They need our financial and emotional support integrating into new communities, whether they remain in Europe, choose Israel, or resettle here in New York. Our latest round of funding is focused on providing employment training, legal services, emotional support, and cash assistance to help build new lives, for as long as needed.
Our funding has also provided children traumatized by war and upheaval some sense of stability. In Israel, we’re helping 4,500 children attend education centers and summer camps. In New York, where there are fewer refugees, we’re funding scholarships for about 150 children at local UJA-supported summer camps. Watch this report on how -- thanks to you -- kids bearing so much of the brunt of the conflict are able to experience some desperately needed joy.
Your kindness and generosity are what make all this possible. Thank you for sustaining this lifesaving work.
