We know that children are a blessing from heaven and parents in Israel are fully aware of this. They have so much love for their children, and you can see it all over Israel; mothers and fathers, absorbed in their children. Like all loving parents, they want the best for their children: education, opportunities, and of course, health and well-being.
There are lots of large families in Israel, and many of these families cannot afford to meet their children’s basic needs. A staggering 47% of families in Israel with four or more children experience food insecurity.
This poverty affects the religious community in Israel the most, many of whom have very large families. Jerusalem, one of Israel’s most religious cities, has the highest poverty rate.
Especially alarming is that child poverty is on the rise, as now 36% of children live below the poverty line. Together we can work towards putting an end to child poverty in Israel.
