"Germany has agreed to extend another $720m (648 million euros) to provide home care and supportive services for frail and vulnerable Holocaust survivors, according to the organisation that handles claims on behalf of Jews who suffered under Nazi Germany.
The announcement came on Wednesday as German Chancellor Olaf Scholz was in Israel for the first time since becoming the leader of his country.
Scholz toured Israel’s Holocaust memorial Yad Vashem alongside Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett in Jerusalem.
The New York-based Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, also referred to as the Claims Conference, said on Wednesday that the money will be distributed to more than 300 social welfare organisations globally."
