Welfare and Social Services Minister Meir Cohen and Eli Alalouf, head of the Committee to Fight Poverty announced on Monday the intended allocation of NIS 1.7 billion for the implementation of the recommendations to fight poverty for the upcoming year.

“For me this is an historic and important moment. Poverty is no longer a problem of invisible people, and its treatment is becoming the responsibility of the government in a structured, measurable and organized manner. This is the responsibility of the government that after many years, is taking responsibility,” said Cohen at the press conference announcing the allocation at the ministry’s offices in Jerusalem.
