Project Spotlight: Funds to Help Feed Impoverished Families
The Fellowship | November 16, 2021
Israel’s Ministry of Welfare and Social Affairs, together with The Fellowship, is providing critical funds that will go directly to impoverished individuals and families needing additional support during the health crisis and pandemic, reports Arutz Sheva:
“These 30,000 families, the most hard-hit out of 110,000 families living under the poverty line, are directly threatened by hunger and food insecurity. With the passage of this budget and with the support of Minister [Avigdor] Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu) from the Treasury and Minister [Meir] Cohen (Yesh Atid) from the Welfare [Ministry], the government will be increasing their support in 2022 to 80 million shekel.”
As significant partners over the years, Keren L’Yedidut, the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, has also continued to increase their funding during the challenging COVID-19-hit times.
The program serves all elements within Israel’s population.
