Hunger in Israel
Tonight 1,600,000 Impoverished Israelis Will Go To Sleep Hungry
Do you know hunger? For over 400,000 families in Israel, hunger is the daily reality of their lives. Among them are more than 600,000 small children. These children and adults survive on infrequent, meager meals high in carbohydrates. Diets lacking in meat, dairy products, fruits, or vegetables result in malnutrition.
But hunger is a vicious cycle, impairing a person's ability to function in every arena of life. Constant hunger makes it hard to get a job, be a competent parent, or even to maintain a marriage. Hunger, broken homes, and crime often go hand in hand.
With Yad Eliezer, your charity can break the poverty cycle.Discover how it all began with one hungry neighbor in 1979...
Yad Eliezer's Solution:
Food Boxes for Over 20,000 People Every Month
Yad Eliezer food boxes stand between some 3,500 families and the hunger that would debilitate them. Some 40,700 food boxes were distributed through 2009. Food boxes contain the essentials: rice, beans, pasta, sugar, flour, oil, laundry detergent, and other necessities. Plenty of fruits and vegetables are provided through the Yad Eliezer Surplus Produce Program as well. By supplying food to the home rather than feeding people in a soup kitchen, Yad Eliezer helps families to maintain a sense of normalcy, dignity, and stability despite their economic constraints.
Your charity dollar goes farther because ongoing relationships with farmers and food wholesalers allow Yad Eliezer to purchase these products at greatly discounted prices. Overhead costs remain below 4% thanks to thousands of volunteers all over Israel who assist in the massive project of packing and distributing food boxes. A careful evaluation process ensures that food boxes are distributed only to those in need. That means that your donation to Yad Eliezer feeds more hungry people. Tens of thousands of grateful recipients literally survive on these pantry essentials.
