TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
On behalf of the St. Petersburg Jewish religious community I would like to express our gratitude to the Am Echad organization and especially to its President Mr. Igor Feldblyum for the help they give to the needy elderly in St. Petersburg, Russia.
All the elderly who receive monthly financial support are suffering due to the desperate situation of many elderly here. These people have got very insufficient income from the state, can not get help from their children, they are unable to earn for living because of age and poor physical ability - they don't have enough money just to buy food or medicine.
So any kind of help is highly appreciated. Support given by Am Echad monthly has become an important part of our community programs dedicated to help Jewish people in St. Petersburg.
