Help us fight poverty in Israel

1.7 million Israelis live below the poverty line, equivalent to 22% of the total population, a figure we cannot live with. This is one of the highest poverty rates in the developed world and double the rate in the UK. This has to change and we can’t do it without your help.

Helping 1.7 Million Israelis under the poverty line

Manna is the UK Branch of Meir Panim, formerly known as Meir Panim UK. We have been operating since September 2008 and our main goal is to raise awareness and support for Meir Panim’s amazing work in Israel.

Meir Panim is on the front line of the daily battle against poverty and hunger in Israel, and we need your help to support them.

For the last decade, tens of thousands of disadvantaged men, women, and children – including Holocaust survivors – have turned to Meir Panim as their source of hope for a brighter future.

  • Meir Panim is helping all Israelis irrespective of background.
  • Over a third of Meir Panim donations comes from within Israel.
  • We have over 1500 devoted volunteers nationwide.
