(Worthy News) – has agreed to pay a further $720 million for the care of vulnerable survivors, the Times of (TOI) reports.

Since 1952 German government has paid about $90 billion to individual people to compensate for the pain and suffering caused by the Nazis during WW2.

Representing Jews who suffered under Nazism, the US-based Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany said in a statement that the new amount would provide home care and supportive services for frail and impoverished Holocaust survivors, TOI reports.

The funds will be shared between more than 300 social welfare organizations to help around 120,000 survivors around the world, TOI said.

The amount of the newly allocated funds is the largest ever granted for the Claims Conference for welfare services in a single year, TOI reports. Last year, the conference distributed $653 million to hundreds of social service agencies globally.

“We are proud to announce this significant allocation at a time when these funds are critical, due to the age, poverty, and increasing disability of our waning survivor population,” Conference President Gideon Taylor said in a statement.

“We know these funds provide vital support during these difficult times,” Taylor attested.
