In the past week, a huge fire raged in Israel in the mountainous area around Jerusalem 🔥
The fire consumed a huge area of nature reserves including beautiful hiking trails and hundreds of plants and wildlife. The fire also penetrated some of the settlements and threatened the locals. More than 2,000 people were forced to abandon their homes because of the danger.
For 3 days, an area of about 6,000 dunams was burned in one of the greenest and most beautiful areas in Israel. Fortunately, the firefighters along with rangers from the Nature and Parks Authority and other forces were finally able to contain the fire. But the damage to the environment is enormous.
👉 In the near future, safety hazards will be removed in all this area and then the long rehabilitation work will begin. We ask you to be a partner in rehabilitation. With the help of your donations, we can assist Israel in purchasing the equipment and materials needed to rehabilitate the area, as well as in purchasing dedicated fire engines that will be scattered throughout the nature reserves in Israel, in order to shorten the response time. Every donation will be accepted with love and every donation helps! 🙏 For details - https://bit.ly/3gcOPlu
