JDC provides new home appliances to Zaporozhe elderly


The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) recently purchased and delivered many new home appliances for their elderly clients in Zaporozhe, as part of its winter relief program.


Based on need, some clients received a refrigerator, washing machine, dryer, oven, burners, or a toaster oven.

All of the photos on the page are those of clients in Zaporozhe, supported by the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond.


Through frigid temperatures and ongoing attacks, so far, JDC has already delivered winter relief to over 1,500 Jews in Zaporozhe this winter season.


Depending on what the client needs, this assistance also included stipends to cover extremely high heating bills, home appliances, portable heaters, coal, wood, blankets, winter clothing, etc.


The majority of Ukraine’s pre-conflict 200,000-person Jewish community has remained in the country throughout the crisis that began on Feb. 24, 2022, with many returning after initially fleeing to neighboring countries.

JDC provides basic and emergency essentials—food, medicine, water, heating and winter supplies, and home care. The war has negatively impacted the country’s economy, job market and educational system.
