About Emunah Australia
Emunah Australia is an affiliate of World Emunah, the international organisation that supports Emunah projects in Israel.
Emunah is a leading Israeli social action and welfare organisation, founded in 1935. It provides lifesaving services to more than 10,000 individuals and families at risk including infants, children, adolescents, adults and senior citizens.
Emunah runs homes for children who have been removed from their families, emergency shelters, women's advocacy and therapy centres.
During the current pandemic, Emunah has stepped up with additional support and resources for people whose lives have been turned upside down, maintaining 24-hour care in their children's homes and facilitating distance education.
In the past year, Emunah Australia has undergone a generational handover. In November 2019, a group of young women from Melbourne and Sydney was fortunate enough to visit Emunah in Israel, thanks to the World Zionist Organisation investing in the future of Zionist causes around the world. In Israel, these women visited a range of facilities and saw firsthand just how life-changing Emunah is.
Emunah Australia is a registered charity with DGR status.
