The most expensive thing in Belarus in winter? Heating. And prices are growing. “We go to the public baths sometimes, because to wash my hair at home I have to heat the water in the bowl,” said Natalia, a teenager from Bobruisk, Belarus. The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) helped Natalia and her mother, Svetlana. The JDC is one of over fifty programs and agencies funded in part by the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati.
