UK Group Suspends Transmission of Funds to Israeli Counterpart

The Trustees of Hazon Yeshaya UK issued the following statement on Friday 25th November 2011:

The Trustees of Hazon Yeshaya UK were recently made aware of a number of concerns relating to elements of the Hazon Yeshaya network in Israel. As a result, we appointed Deloitte to undertake an independent investigation in Israel. This will enable us to be sure that all donations from Hazon Yeshaya UK are being properly applied in Israel, and that Hazon Yeshaya in Israel is following the principles of good governance. Until we are all reassured, Hazon Yeshaya UK is suspending the transmission of funds to Israel. The Trustees have advised donors of the position directly and will make every effort to keep supporters informed as more information becomes available.
