Each day Yad Elie cares for the most deprived, satisfying their hunger, preserving their health and restoring a smile to their faces.

Schools that receive Yad Elie’s financial support can choose to use the funds as they see fit. After all, the teachers know best what their pupils need most. Each meal includes one serving of protein, carbohydrates, vegetables and sometimes a fruit. In some schools a healthy breakfast is served at 10.00 in the morning. In others hot lunches are catered or prepared in the school kitchen. Several schools work with LEKET, the country’s largest food bank and make sandwiches with the fresh rolls and spreads that are brought to them daily.

Yad Elie does not only support schools, but also numerous other educational frameworks. Since 2014 Yad Elie works together with SHUTAF, a year-round informal education program for children and teens with special needs. Shutaf welcomes all children- with and without disabilities- regardless of educational, religious and socioeconomic differences.
