HESED-ON-WHEELS

Valeriy Berkman
David Sirota is the Head of the Program

  Hesed-On-Wheels Program is oriented on support of minimum standard of living, and it is the same for all Jewish people in Kazakhstan.
  Not all Jewish people who are hard up in Kazakhstan have a chance to keep in touch with each other because they live far away from Jewish organizations like Hesed.

  Thus, in Almaty oblast by March 2002 more then 300 Jewish people were registered, and 150 of them are the clients of Hesed-On-Wheels Program (the biggest settlements are: Kaskelen, Taldykorgan, Tekeli, Burunday).

  Taking into consideration that not every area has a special place for people to meet, the Program employees play a decisive role in rising and rallying of Jewish national traditions.
  The Program employees deliver Jewish newspapers, magazines, books to the clients, they help in searching relatives, organize holydays. Also they deliver hot meals, food packages and medicine.

  Warm Houses is a good help for clients. In November 2000 the first one of them was opened in Kaskelen (now 8 families gathered there). The other day Warm House was opened in Burunday.
