Meir Panim During covonavirus
Meir Panim before Corona
Israel is in a state of emergency due to the impact of the pandemic. With an unemployment rate of over 23%, 1 in 7 Israelis are skipping meals and 50% of Israelis are worried they can’t pay rent.
The need for our daily meals tripled and we have been meeting the demands of the newly unemployed, clients in isolation who have reached out for help and those who have been put on furlough. Many families are finding themselves in this kind of situation for the first time in their lives.
The financial strain of the pandemic will last well into the future and beyond its health risks. Meir Panim is committed to meeting the increase in demands as long as it takes and is committed to helping as many needy people as possible.
