Emergency call for support!

Donations required for activities for 2700 children in Ashkelon.

The Ashkelon Foundation, together with local Ashkelon Municipality and local organizations, are actively operating 42 protected shelters across the city, for 2700 children, that were opened due to the current threat. We are operating daily activities, for children of the ages 3-15, whereas the high school children are leading the activities.

We are in urgent need of donations to provide food, beverages and special equipment/games for the children in the sum of around 5400 shekels a day. The daily sirens and threats are constant, around 5-9 times daily. Part of the children parents have been called up to Reserve duty, are working or volunteering within the local community.
