Importing and distributing humanitarian aid in Israel

Israel is a modern, technologically advanced nation, but over 1.7 million people, almost 25% of Israelis, live below the poverty line.

The Joseph Project distributes aid in Israel to individuals, families, orphanages, hospitals, congregations, schools, and more through their growing network of independent local centers and reputable welfare organizations. The Joseph Project, in partnership with charities around the world, supplies tens of thousands of people with practical aid like clothing, diapers, furniture, linens, and medical supplies, while also offering service opportunities for tour groups wanting to make a difference in the Land.
