The Petachon Lev organization, which works to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty in Israel, inaugurated the organization's new aid center in Petach Tikva, which was established in cooperation with the municipality and will provide humanitarian aid to needy families, Holocaust survivors, the elderly, new immigrants and more.
Due to the high cost of living in Israel and the difficult economic situation of young and elderly families, at the new aid center rich food baskets, items of clothing and footwear, children's toys and games, baby food, electrical goods, household items and more will be distributed weekly to the organization's aid seekers.
In addition, the organization's social grocery, which is open to the general public and sells products at symbolic and subsidized prices, will operate in the place, and its revenues are used to purchase food baskets.
The aid center will provide legal advice services, rights extraction and even hairdressing services for the welfare of aid recipients.

The Mayor of Petah Tikva, Rami Greenberg: "The city of Petah Tikva is blessed with generous and open-hearted men and women who donate their time and energy for society and the community. It is only natural that the Petah Tikva organization will open a branch in Petah Tikva at the Volunteer Home, which is a local center for giving and helping anyone in need. Petahon Organization Lev helps all over the country, to thousands of people every day and does so without profit intentions. I thank the Petachon Lev organization for the cooperation and good will and wish for all of us to continue to be on the giving side."
The CEO of Petachon Lev, Eli Cohen: "We are happy and excited to be here in Petach Tikva, to inaugurate the new assistance center of Petachon Lev in the city.
From our extensive experience in 25 years of activity, we can say with certainty that the envelope we provide to those seeking aid succeeds in removing people from the cycle of poverty in Israel.
I would like to thank the mayor, Rami Greenberg for the cooperation that led to the opening of the center, and all those involved in the work.
