The Joint Australia COVID-19 Update – 1 May 2020

Where Are They Now?

Dear Joint supporter

I hope that you are well in these trying times.

I want to bring to life Holocaust survivor Asya Sederenko, client number 15,732 of the 102,000 people that we look after every day in over 70 countries and Israel (as the largest NGO). Her message, video and article below illustrate that The Joint is diligently working to ensure your gift is incredibly useful. We can both have pride in what we achieve together.

Our clients continue to receive the services they need to survive, even in these challenging times:

“During this difficult time for me and all of us, due to the coronavirus pandemic, I have to be at home and in self-isolation, because I understand I’m in a high-risk group. But even today, when there are so many restrictions, my JDC Hesed homecare worker continues to come to me and provide me with vital assistance.

She supports me emotionally, and my anxiety goes away after talking with her. I’m grateful to her for taking care of my health. She comes in a mask and gloves, and she always disinfects her hands. These items of personal protective equipment were given to her by JDC and Hesed.

The help given to me at this time is simply invaluable. It makes me feel like I’m not alone, and it helps me believe in a better tomorrow. I feel connected to a large, friendly global Jewish community.

I’m very grateful to JDC’s donors, who finance Hesed and our Jewish community, for the assistance they’re providing, without which I couldn’t survive this terrible time.”


Thanks to a generous anonymous donor, from now until 5 May 2020 (the end of #GivingTuesdayNow) which is a global day of giving and unity, your gift to The Joint will be matched dollar-for-dollar (up to $20,000 USD) doubling your impact. 

Together we will change the world for Jews in need, in over 70 countries and in Israel, as the largest NGO in the Holy Land.

The Joint Australia wishes you Shabbat Shalom and a safe and enjoyable weekend.

Kind regards,

Eva Fischl OAM 

Philip Bos
Executive Director
