The Claims Conference funds organizations and institutions around the world that provide essential social services for Jewish victims of Nazi persecution, and who best know the priorities in their communities and how to address them. The Claims Conference is in close contact with these agencies, working with them to develop strategies to keep Holocaust victims healthy and fed, to deliver care in their homes, to bring them socialization opportunities, and to obtain any government benefits to which they may be entitled.

institutions that assist Jewish victims of Nazism in 46 countries.
