According to an annual report published by Bituach Leumi (National Insurance Institute) in December of 2018, over 1.8 million Israelis – including 800,000 children – are living below the poverty line. Analysts are not predicting a dramatic change, leaving the data to be shocking and concerning.

Although there is researching being conducted as to the reason, it is important not to delay and help act now. Help Meir Panim reduce the amount. Together, we can make a difference.
