MISSION ACCOMPLISHED - PART I
DIGNITY FIRST AND FOOD CARDS TOPS ISRAELI GOVERNMENT AGENDA
This past week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Minister of Welfare Moshe Kachlon announced a major undertaking to feed the underprivileged in Israeli society with a new funding effort of 100,000,000 Shekel (approx. $25M USD).
Monday, April 02, 2012, Israel Minister of Welfare, Moshe Kachlon strongly criticized the majority of Israeli NGO's distributing food packages and those operating soup kitchens, etc.
The reaction from the NGO sector was swift and furious, blaming the government for not doing enough and saying that they, the NGO's have no choice but to operate in the way they do, in order to collect funds and help the poor in place of government.
It is well known that most organizations try to do their own things and it usually does not matter if their particular method is the most economical, cost efficient, transparent, etc. But when 20 of the larger charities, municipalities, public and private charities choose to partner with one organization to provide the same basic need, IT SHOULD TELL YOU SOMETHING!
