The Yedid community empowerment organization and Tel Aviv’s Academy of Commercial Communications copywriting school are joining Holocaust survivor groups in their fight to help the estimated 120,000 Israeli survivors who live in poverty.

On Sunday, the two NGOs will embark on a campaign calling on the government to help Shoah survivors to live in dignity.

Also on Sunday, a “March of the Living” will be held to protest Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s decision this week to provide an additional NIS 83 a month to needy survivors. The protest will begin outside the Knesset at 4:30 p.m. and head to the Prime Minister’s Office nearby. Several other events are planned across the country, with the help of Yedid’s 24 branches.
