North African survivors eligible for grants

 A UK Jewish organisation is calling on survivors of WWII from North Africa living in the UK to apply for grants.

 Jews were among the inmates of Moroccan labour camps during WWII. These photos were taken by Spanish prisoner Sinforiano Rodrigues at Bou Arfa camp.

The
Six Point Foundation will support all North African survivors from
Algeria, Tunisia, Libya as well as Morocco, who are living in the UK
providing they meet
their criteria.

Survivors of the pro-Nazi Farhud pogrom in Iraq do not qualify.

The
Foundation would like to distribute its funds but has a limited window until  early spring 2017. It would like to
make contact with survivors as soon as possible.

Applicants need to be current UK residents of Jewish origin
who experienced ‘Nazi oppression’, 
have an  income of less than £10k per annum (excluding any pensions or social security payments) and assets of less than £32k (excluding a primary residence and a car). They must be willing  to receive a home visit from a social worker experienced in assessing Holocaust survivors and refugees.

Applicants should contact Trisha Curtis at [email protected]
