The issue of supporting needy children through charitable organizations and initiatives is a complicated one. On one hand, many people will say that the natural inclination is to help such children. Who can see a hungry child and refrain from feeding him? On the other hand, for the past few years there has been a heated debate that it is the government’s obligation to feed needy children and that citizens’ taxes should be used for it.

Both are right, but at least as far as Marion Kunstenaar is concerned, there is no debate. The Dutch native is the director of Yad Elie, a nonprofit organization she founded in 2002, dedicated to the memory of her husband, after she heard about a seven-year-old pupil who had to beg his classmates for leftovers from their sandwiches.
