                             ACTION PSJ  Mission

ACTION PSJ is a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the Jewish community in Eastern Europe, and providing general humanitarian aid to those in need.

 

ACTION PSJ MEETING the NEED

In mid 2014 Russia invaded Ukraine, taking all of the Crimean peninsula and parts of Eastern Ukraine in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions. As a result of the war, Ukraine's currency has lost 2/3 of its value and Ukrainian pensions have also lost 2/3 of their value, leaving the elderly with little to spend on food or medicine.
 
Action for Post-Soviet Jewry is fortunately in place  to provide money, food, clothes, medical supplies and Jewish connection points to thousands of pensioners. Many of the people helped are Holocaust survivors, elderly and have a variety of physical. emotional and  spiritual needs.

 We Believe ...
in the spirit of the Jewish people
We Inspire  ...
others to get involve
We Take Action  ...  
and we make difference in people's lives
