Social Projects

 

No one is exempt from life's hardships, but some are more capable of dealing with them, either on their own or by enlisting help. Immigrants, especially those from distressed countries, and others, may find themselves in temporary crisis due to ill health or unemployment, crises that could be overcome through financial aid. ESRA funds are earmarked for welfare projects with proven success. Each project we initiate and run is in cooperation with a local authority.
