Israeli President Reuven Rivlin
When you look into the face of a child suffering from malnourishment, it’s impossible to know his or her pain.
Today, two out of every five children in Israel go to bed hungry. Their growth is stunted without access to food containing sufficient vitamins and minerals. Many don’t attend school because of exhaustion or illness. And if they do, they often cannot concentrate.
These children are Israel’s future. This Passover, we need your help.
Your gift to Meir Panim could transform a child’s world. Our mission it to alleviate the harmful effects of poverty on thousands of families across Israel. When friends like you partner with us, we can meet this urgent need of providing food and ensure no child goes to bed hungry.
Just $1 a day will help provide a warm meal daily for a child like Ruth* from Jerusalem.
Ruth’s father died two years ago of cancer. Since then, her mother has been struggling to raise Ruth and her brother on the meager salary she earns ironing shirts at a local laundromat. Generous friends like you enabled us to give Ruth and her family the food they need to survive and thrive.
But we cannot rest. We want to feed all of the heartbreaking numbers of children across Israel who do not have enough to eat. We want to continue to serve more warm meals through our Meals for Children school lunch program, distribute additional food shopping cards, and provide more quality nutrition in our restaurant-style soup kitchens.
Now we need your help. Your $1 a day will help give a little one like Ruth a full smile and a brighter future.
Thank you in advance for helping us work toward changing the lives of the children of Israel - one meal, one day at a time.
