Do you want to support IDF soldiers? For a tiny country like Israel, self-defense is really important. Just like you are fighting against hunger and poverty with Meir Panim, our soldiers are fighting on borders to protect the country and its people.
Thousands of people mostly volunteers from all around the world have joined the armed forces, staying far away from their families and loved ones – to prove their commitment and courage for Jewish community. Their stories, dedication, and life experiences have inspired many around the globe.
At Meir Panim, we believe the safety of these soldiers is a guarantee of our and our kids’ future. Every IDF soldier believes in their cause for a better and unified world. Along with the struggle to diminish hunger, we want to support these IDF soldiers. Most of these soldiers are young Jewish men and women who want to safeguard the borders of Israel and feel dedicated to the safety of the Jewish community.
You can support IDF soldiers too
Supporting IDF soldiers requires an understanding and sympathy for the need of these young soldiers. Along with our attempts to protect Israelis from food insecurity, poverty, and hunger, we have been on our mission to support IDF soldiers.
Fortunately, Meir Panim offers an easy-to-access platform to anyone who wants to support IDF soldiers. It is estimated that around 7,000 IDF soldiers are living alone and have no one at home to cook or take care of them, with almost 45% of these brave soldiers coming from outside Israel. There are even soldiers who had an abusive childhood, have no family anywhere in the world, or have families who have surrendered them.
You can show your support and empathy for these lone soldiers by donating to Meir Panim. We would deliver hot Shabbat meals or food packages to these soldiers with your help.
