Israel should be an example to the world in addressing social problems. Through its network of volunteers and support from contributors, ATZUM makes a crucial difference in these areas:
Assistance to Survivors of Terror. Countless Israeli families have suffered trauma and serious economic difficulties following death or injury. ATZUM helps families to regain stability, particularly those whose major wage earner has been incapacitated.
Support to Righteous Gentiles. Israel is a home to 44 surviving Hasiday Umot Olam, Righteous Gentiles, and their spouses who risked their lives to save Jews during the Shoah. ATZUM works to meet the basic needs of this elderly population and improve the quality of life in their last years.
Israel is a destination country for human trafficking. Victims are repeatedly sold and resold to pimps and brothel owners; forced to work in slave-like conditions; abused and exploited. ATZUM works through legal channels to combat trafficking in Israel.
