Emergency Fund to Support Kibbutzim Near Gaza

The Kibbutz Movement, serving as the governing body for 257 Kibbutzim scattered across Israel, hereby brings to your attention the critical situation faced by Kibbutzim situated in the proximity of the Gaza Strip in southern Israel. Notable among them are the Kibbutzim of Kerem Shalom, Sufa, Holit, Nir Yitzhak, Magen, Nir Oz, Nirim, Ein Ha’Shlosha, Kisufim, Re’im, Be’eri, Nahal Oz, Kfar Aza, Mefalsim, Erez, Nir Am, Gevim, Or Ha’Ner, Bror Hayil, Yad Mordechai, Zikim, Karmiya, and Gvar’am.

Since the morning of Saturday, the 7th of October 2023, these resilient Kibbutzim have endured a relentless and lethal onslaught perpetrated by the terrorist organization “Hamas.” This ruthless assault has exacted a grievous toll, resulting in the loss of precious human lives, abduction of residents and extensive property damage. Regrettably, many of the afflicted communities have been compelled to evacuate their homes for their own safety.

In response to these dire circumstances, the Kibbutz Movement has taken decisive action by establishing an emergency situation room. This dedicated team is laboring tirelessly to provide indispensable aid and support to the valiant members of these Kibbutzim under its stewardship. As part of these resolute efforts, we are reaching out to you with an earnest appeal for your generous contribution.
Your donation will be instrumental in facilitating the following essential provisions:

1. Provision of Basic Necessities: This encompasses the distribution of clothing, blankets, towels, and hygiene essentials.
2. Mental Health Support: Our commitment extends to facilitating access to psychiatrists, compassionate social workers, emotional therapy, and educational guidance for those profoundly affected.
3. Logistics, Transportation, and Accommodation: We are resolute in ensuring the timely and efficient delivery of vital resources to the affected regions.
4. Any Other Immediate Needs: We remain prepared to swiftly address and respond to any evolving requirements arising from this crisis.

It is our solemn pledge that every contribution received will be allocated exclusively to the Kibbutzim in strict accordance with their specific needs and the urgency ascertained by the Kibbutz Movement.
Your unwavering support will significantly impact and alleviate the burdens faced during these challenging times. We humbly express our gratitude for your consideration and stand united in solidarity as we confront this adversity together.

We will appreciate any donation, with the hope of quieter days.

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
