Cherkassy Regional Charitable Jewish Foundation (CRCJF) “Generations’ Care - Hesed Dorot” was founded in the beginning of 1997 by the two organizations - Cherkassy Local United Jewish Community and Association of Jewish Communities of Ukrainian shtetls – on the initiative and with the financial support of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC). During a comparatively short time the charitable organization was founded that created programs on social protection of  people in need in Cherkassy and Kiev regions.
Since 1999 CRCJF “Hesed Dorot’ carries out activities only on the territory of Cherkassy region and nowadays works in more than 60 localities and includes more than 15 social and social-community programs. One should mention that approximately 30 percent of the Foundation’s paternalized are non-Jews. Most of them are Righteous gentiles – people who saved Jews in World War II.
All Hesed programs are conceived and created to help Foundation’s paternalized – physically challenged people and pensioners – to survive in this time of trouble.
