Costing NIS 50 million:

Two welfare and community complexes will be built in the Issawiya and Beit Hanina neighborhoods of Jerusalem for the Arab sector in the city, the Jerusalem Ministry of Heritage and the Jerusalem Municipality announced.

The broad budget that will be transferred from the Ministry of Jerusalem and Heritage to the municipality and will be used to build the innovative buildings, has been allocated from the five-year plan to reduce gaps in East Jerusalem.

In Issawiya, a neighborhood with a very low socio-economic rating where more than 20,000 residents live, a multi-purpose building will be built for the first time at a cost of NIS 15 million.

The building will serve as a community center, a mother and child center (a drop of milk) and a welfare center, and dormitories and kindergartens will be built there.

The mother and child center to be established in the building will continue to reduce the gaps of recent years.

There are currently 32 mother and child centers in Jerusalem, only six of them in the east of the city.

In the coming years, additional centers are planned, which will serve about 5,000 babies from East Jerusalem each year.

In the Beit Hanina neighborhood, where almost 50,000 people live, a center for the elderly and a large welfare office will be established at a total cost of NIS 35 million.

The construction of the building will meet an urgent need that exists in the neighborhood, where there is no permanent building for the welfare office or any activities for the elderly, compared to eight similar centers in the west of the city.

The construction of two community centers is another part of the implementation of the government's decision to reduce gaps in East Jerusalem, which was approved by the government for the first time in 2018, with a broad budget investment of NIS 2.1 billion.

The Jerusalem and Heritage Ministry, which manages the program, has in recent weeks begun work on the headquarters in preparation for the approval of the next five-year plan, which is expected to double its budget.

Minister of Construction and Housing, Jerusalem and Heritage, Zeev Elkin: "We continue to change the reality in East Jerusalem.

Community and welfare buildings in the edge neighborhoods in the east of the city will help residents get better service, and will alleviate the existing congestion in public institutions in the west of the city.

We, at the Jerusalem and Heritage Ministry, are leading a revolution in East Jerusalem in many areas, such as welfare, education and infrastructure.

The next five-year plan will continue to reduce gaps, and will expand to other areas for the benefit of the entire capital of Israel. "

The Mayor of Jerusalem, Moshe Leon: "The construction of the two new complexes joins a long line of many initiatives and moves that we have been leading in recent years, to reduce the social and economic gaps in East Jerusalem.

"Thanks to the strong will and fruitful cooperation between all parties, we were able to provide an unprecedented response to tens of thousands of East Jerusalem residents, thus elevating the whole of Jerusalem, both East and West, on a path of growth and prosperity."
