Our Mission

British Emunah has spent over 80 years creating a better future for Israel’s vulnerable children.  This is our mission. We now support 37 projects run by our sister organisation Emunah Israel.

Since its foundation in the early 1930s Emunah has grown to become one of the top providers of social welfare services throughout Israel.  It is responsible for the care of 12,000 children and their families every year.

Emunah cares for those children whose lives are in danger and whom no-one else wants. Through our children’s homes, day care centres, counselling services, schools, community centres  and family support centres we provide a safe nurturing refuge for Israel’s most desperate children at risk. We meet their physical, emotional, psychological and social needs with a unique combination of professional expertise and timeless Jewish family values.

Emunah meets head on the challenges of Israel’s rapidly changing social needs and crises in the face of the cruellest of childcare issues: trauma, physical, sexual and emotional abuse, addiction, poverty, domestic violence and profound neglect.

Emunah works hand in hand with the Israeli government welfare ministry playing a central role in social welfare provision across Israel.

We have faith (emunah) that we can break the cycles of neglect and transform the lives of the children in our care.
