Homecare Assistance for Elderly Survivors in Sarajevo




More than 190 Holocaust survivors live in Sarajevo today, most of them are old and chronically ill and have difficulty caring for themselves. Many live off the state pension. For the most part, their families left the city during the war. They are reliant on the assistance of the Jewish Community in their daily lives. Among other things, the program 'La Benevolencija' offers: home visits, meals on wheels, accompaniment to the doctor and medical and mental care.
