Dedicated to Helping Children
The organization known as American Friends of Meir Panim is dedicated to helping alleviate poverty within the country of Israel. Through social programs and food services they have been able to help thousands of people in need. However, one of the organization’s biggest concerns is the growing number of impoverished children. Meir Panim understands that children cannot be expected to perform well in school without being fed; their goal is to feed the 756,900 children currently living below the poverty line.
