Aid Organization for Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Israel

Aid to refugees in Israel during Coronavirus Crisis

The Coronavirus crisis has hit the asylum seeker community hard. The majority of asylum seekers in Israel are employed by the hospitality and restaurant sectors which have been paralized. Thousands have lost their livelihood, but unlike Israeli citizens, they are not eligible for unemployment benefits. Asylum seekers have very limited access to social and health services, and this deepens the humanitarian distress of the community. Food and nutrition security was harmed; many have lost their health insurances and many face eviction from their homes. This situation is especially difficult for women asylum seekers, many of whom are single mothers who struggle to survive and feed their children.

ASSAF provides psychosocial aid for refugees and asylum seekers in Israel and acts to promote their rights. During the current crisis, the organization stands by the community, voicing their needs to the authorities, collaborating with projects in the civil society on their behalf and providing assistance through psychosocial aid programs. We operate in full consideration of the instructions and safety regulations by the Ministry of Health, in order to protect our employees, volunteers and target community. In addition, we do everything in our power to narrow language gaps and to make information and updates on protection from Coronavirus, as delivered by the Ministry of Health and other authorities, accessible to the community
