At the end of February, awards were sent to all JFR supported Righteous living in 12 countries. The rescuers are so appreciative that we have remembered them and are taking care of them. They are sending emails, through their children and grandchildren, thanking the JFR and each of you for the funds that they receive. They send their good wishes! On behalf of the rescuers, we at the JFR thank you as well for making their lives so much better and brighter. Please click here to read the notes from the rescuers.
Last month we marked the one year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. During the past year we have remained in close contact with Ukrainian rescuers and their families. A number have left their homes for what they hoped would be safer places. One rescuer left the country for Switzerland. The rescuers in Ukraine have expressed their gratitude for your extra support during this time.
The JFR would like to recognize the important work of the Polish Society for the Righteous. The Society, which is head by Dr. Anna Stupnicka Bando, is based in Warsaw, Poland. Here is a link to Anna’s rescue story. For more than twenty-five years, the JFR has worked closely with the Polish Society for the Righteous. Over the past two decades, the Society has helped the JFR reach out to JFR-supported rescuers living in Poland.
