JDC Worldwide Programs - Romania

JDC Worldwide Programs - Romania: "1967 with a large-scale relief operation mounted in response to the effects of chronic poverty on some of Romania’s most at-risk communities. More than 40 years later, poverty and rising inflation continue to plague Romania’s most vulnerable citizens, including elderly pensioners and at-risk children, with many parents barely able to provide for their families.

Working with the Jewish community, JDC established the Children in Need program, which provides food, medicines, and school supplies to needy children. JDC’s other efforts include:

Cash assistance, meals-on-wheels, and other services for aging Holocaust survivors
Support for the Rosen Home for the Aged
Jewish summer camps, education programs, and other Jewish community life activities for families
