Thirteen years ago, Helping Hand Coalition partnered with GAiN (Global Aid Network), an international organization established in Germany by Klaus and Claudia Dewald, to aid survivors of the Holocaust and World War II veterans throughout the Land of Israel.

Assisting more than 350 people, the program has continued to grow over the years, sparking joy and gratitude in the lives of both the survivors and sponsors.
