Description

AMCHA offers psychosocial assistance to Holocaust survivors, many of them of Austrian origin. The organization employs 130 social workers, psychologists and therapists who care for over 1000 clients in Jerusalem, Tel-Aviv, Haifa and Beersheba. AMCHA now wanted to extend its services to further towns, above all to provide adequate care for 400 survivors in Sourther Israel (area surrounding Beersheba). It was intended to expand to the cities Rehovot, Netanya, Kiryat Bialik, Nazareth Illit, Afula and Carmiel.

Es ist an eine Erweiterung in den Städten Rehovot, Netanya, Kiryat Bialik, Nazerath Illit, Afula und Carmiel gedacht.
