Although Neve Michael receives funds from the Department of Welfare every month for each child that crosses our threshold. There is a vast gap between the amount we receive and the actual amount it costs per child.
For example, the Israeli government allocates 80 NIS ( $22 ) per child per month for psychological treatment. It is absurd to think that we can help our children break the vicious cycle of distress based upon government funding.
It costs $2000 per month per child.
The Ministry of Welfare gives $1500 per month per child.
The shortfall is $500 per month per child.
Monthly shortfall for 280 children: $140,000.
We receive $20 a month per child for therapy
We receive $15 a month per child for turotial assistance
We receive $12 a month per child for clothes
Now that you have read about what we do- you are probably wondering how we do it. Well, we can do it only together with you.
