“Hesed Yehuda” Welfare Center Marked its 20th Anniversary

Just 20 years ago Chisinau Jewish welfare center “Hesed Yehuda” was established by initiative and with the support of the AJJDC and Claims Conference.
 
Elderly Nazi victims, needy retired Jews in Chisinau and other 30 settlements in the center and south of Moldova became the recipients of about 20 welfare programs of the Center.
 
During this period thousands of people received medical, food, SOS, winter relief, homecare assistance, repairing of the apartments and equipment, etc. Many of them just survived in difficult conditions of Moldova social and economic situation where an average pension is ~$55 per month.
 
Since 2005 Hesed moved to the KJJC and became one of its integral and important parts.
 
On May 17, 2016 a festive celebration of the nice jubilee took place in the main Concert hall of the Campus where several hundreds of people admired a nice cultural program prepared by the JCC KEDEM as a gift to the partner organization.
