The Finance Ministry announced this week that it would double the budget for a charity dedicated to the welfare of Holocaust survivors. After the adjustment, the budget was expected to reach NIS 14 million. In January, the charity had to cease the aid it provided, due to a severe shortage of money, Army Radio reported. The welfare fund said that the added money would only be able to provide a partial answer to the survivors' needs. The shortage in funds still reaches NIS 45 million.
