The Joint and WIZO join forces to help Israelis in need

For Immediate Release

THE JOINT and WIZO joined forces for the first time since 1967, staging functions across Sydney and Melbourne in August this year to fund programs that will help break the cycle of poverty in Israel.

According to a report released by the National Insurance Institute, around one in three children live in poverty in Israel, which has the second highest poverty rate among OECD countries, ranking behind Mexico.

“There comes a time when people need to come together to help and this is simply one of them,” Eva Fischl OAM, President of THE JOINT AUSTRALIA commented.

The Joint is Israel’s largest NGO partner in caring for Israelis living on the margins including the disabled, youth-at-risk, the chronically unemployed, immigrant groups and the elderly. WIZO is a key player in caring for women and children and so together, the two groups share a passion for investment in Israel’s people.

The blockbuster guest speaker was Moshe ‘Bogie’ Ya’alon, who had resigned from his position as Minister of Defence earlier this year with a promise that he will be challenging Prime Minister Netanyahu for the top job in the next elections.

Audiences across Sydney and Melbourne were riveted by Ya’alons insights and gave generously to support the historical campaign that is already changing lives.
