What We Do

Australian Friends of Meir Panim

Australian Friends of Meir Panim (AUFMP) was established to promote, support and further activities which are committed to providing both immediate and long-term relief to the impoverished – young and old alike – via a dynamic range of food and social service programs, all aimed at helping the needy with dignity and respect.


AUFMP funds organizations such as Meir Panim based upon grant applications submitted to it and decided upon by the Board of Directors. AUFMP is an independent entity and operates according to the laws of the State of Victoria in Australia.


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’s unwavering commitment to the people of Israel has helped bring lasting relief to the poor, encouragement for the less fortunate, new opportunities for struggling families, and hope for children-at-risk.

Meir Panim depends upon AUFMP support to provide an effective and realistic solution to Israel’s poverty crisis. Your generous support will help bring lasting relief to the poor, encouragement for the less fortunate, new opportunities for struggling families, and hope for children-at-risk.


The Problem:

According to the latest poverty report from the National Insurance Institute, there are over 1,700,000 people living below the poverty line; among them are over 700,000 children! One out of every three Israeli children is suffering from hunger, one in four people are living in poverty, and one in five of the elderly are in need of immediate assistance.


The Solution:

The food and social service programs funded by Australian Friends of Meir Panim help to alleviate the harmful effects of poverty in the short-term and provide long-term, proactive solutions to assist needy Israelis to break out of the cycle of poverty and become active, self-sufficient members of Israeli society.
