About Curt Landry Ministries’ Work with Holocaust Survivors


There are still people living throughout the world who survived the horrors of the Holocaust. Many of these survivors find themselves living alone without even the basics they need to properly take care of themselves.

This is why we at Curt Landry Ministries have made it a mission to provide for as many of these brave men and women as we can, in physical, spiritual and emotional ways. By contributing to our efforts, you can help to make a difference in the lives of countless Holocaust survivors still living in Israel in their latter years.

We are currently assisting more than 400 Holocaust survivors in Jerusalem by providing some of their most basic needs. For example, many of them live without cold running water or clean hot water. They are often unable to get to their doctor’s appointments, or even to the grocery store. Simple acts of self-care that we might take for granted include hot meals, food for religious feasts, haircuts and warm winter blankets.

Experts estimate there are about 180,000 Holocaust survivors still living in Israel today, and of those, at least 70,000 struggle to maintain their independence and meet their basic needs. This means that 38 percent of Holocaust survivors in Israel are in need of your support.

Most of these people live in low-income apartments, which tend to be in dire need of maintenance and repair, which can make life for them quite difficult and, in some cases, unsafe. For many, most of their families and communities were lost during World War II, and they are in great need of companionship.

We sponsor a variety of Holocaust survivor projects at Curt Landry Ministries. In one example, we have a team of plumbers and handymen who volunteer their services, making repairs for Holocaust survivors who would be unable to afford them otherwise. We also provide them with personal care needs, such as haircuts and home items. These are small but practical needs that are greatly appreciated.

Many of these survivors do not have hot meals every day. A team of our volunteers puts together these meals and delivers them to their doorstep, which always brings a big smile to their faces.

You can partner with us to help us do more for these courageous survivors. For more information about the various Holocaust survivor programs we sponsor and the opportunities you have to contribute, we encourage you to reach out to us today at Curt Landry Ministries.
