The international fellowship of Christians and Jews announced on Monday that it will donate NIS 8 million to strengthen communities around Gaza in light of the recent rocket attacks in the region.

The contribution, which will go into an immediate operations basket, is a continuation of an extensive NIS 30 million project which began in 2011 and includes a variety of protective actions such as equipping rescue forces and communities in the South. The operation is being completed these days.



The sum of NIS 8 million, will be divided into four areas of activities: Two and a half million shekels will go towards the renovation of 50 public shelters in cities of Ashkelon, Ashdod, Beersheba and Netivot; one million to the establishment of sheltered medical clinics in the Eshkol Regional Council; three million will fund equipment and training for dozens of emergency teams in southern towns and the remaining 2 million will be used for the establishment of 28 emergency operation centers.

Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, president of the Fellowship, said in a statement: "Improving the personal safety of residents of the South is a top priority of the Fellowship and its donors worldwide.”
