2016 budget worries bonds mayors, social service NGOs

More than 90 mayors and the heads of a number of social service NGOs are set to gather in at the Kfar Maccabiah hotel in Ramat Gan on Monday out of concern over the government’s 2016 budget.

Calling itself a “coalition of social reform,” the group has pledged to “fight for welfare provisions in the upcoming budget.”

Organized by the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, the gathering will present a demand for the implementation of recommendations made by the Committee to Fight Poverty, which in 2013 was tasked by the government to formulate a plan to reduce the number of people living below the poverty line and to reduce the depth of poverty.
