The Robin Hood Israel Foundation is now included in the Civil Society database of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA). It has also been approved to attend standing committee meetings of several UN bodies, such as The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), The Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC), its Emergency Directors Group (EDG) and Operational Policy and Advocacy Group (OPAG).
“We are gratified that Robin Hood Israel Foundation has been included in the DESA's Civil Society database. Our next goal is to receive consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council. Being a recognized UN charity will help us in our efforts to improve the welfare of Israeli citizens and strengthen Israeli society”, says lawyer Benjamin Rotstein, representing the Robin Hood Israel Foundation.
