NEW YORK – The American NGO iVolunteer, which provides individual assistance to Holocaust survivors in the US, held its annual fundraising “Light Up the Night” Hanukka gala last week in New York City to raise funds for survivors and increase public awareness of their needs.

Sheva Tauby, who runs the organization with her husband, explained that the help iVolunteer provides ranges from covering certain expenses to volunteers simply going over to the survivors’ homes to keep them company, fix something around the house or call them regularly just to chat and hear their everyday concerns.

“We are involved with very hands-on things. It could be anything like cover a couple of hundred dollars worth of medical expenses that the insurance doesn’t, for example,” she said.
