For the Endeberrya family, the recent escalation of violence in the eastern Ukrainian city of Slavyansk hit terrifyingly close to home.
Two months into the violence there, a bomb ripped through their house, destroying its walls and roof, crushing their furniture and many of their belongings and killing their dog.
The family left the city immediately, taking with them only what they were wearing. Not knowing where to go, they traveled about two and a half hours northwest to Kharkov, where a family of volunteers from the local Jewish community took them in.
In Kharkov, JDC has been working hard to provide those who have left their homes with material support, host family accommodations and more. But the future remains uncertain for the Endeberryas.
