We need your help in providing meals, for equipping and renovating the existing 16 Moadoniyot. But that's not enough. There is a very long waiting list of Children that need a "Substitute Home", which we cannot provide since the current After School programs Moadoniyot are full. Please lend a Helping Hand by also helping us build more Moadoniyot so all of our high-risk children will be cared for.
47,359 children live in Netanya, 10,000 of which are recognized by the Welfare Department. Immigrants from Ethiopia and the Former Soviet Union make up a third of this group. Approx. 1,000 of the children at high risk attend therapeutic daycare centers, community frameworks, and are in foster homes, boarding schools and dormitories. They suffer from deficiencies due to a background of severe financial distress, absorption crisis, parental dysfunction, and illness. These children also include orphans and single parent families.
