Abundant Life, a non-profit organization in Israel, fights for the protection of a mother and the unborn baby in her womb – and then supports in practical ways mothers who have chosen life.

Just as its name implies, the organization believes in the gift of life. Abundant Life upholds the sanctity of life and identifies with the words in Job 1:21: “The Lord gave (life) and the Lord has taken away (life) – may the name of the Lord be praised.”

The vision of Abundant Life began in 1999 when a young girl with an unwanted pregnancy contacted Anat Brenner for counseling. Following the counseling she received from Anat, the young girl decided to keep her baby instead of having an abortion.

Because of the pregnancy, however, the girl was fired from her job and, when she returned home from the hospital with her newborn baby girl, the landlord ordered her to leave the apartment claiming she failed to pay rent.
