Keren Hayesod gives $1m. for bomb shelters in South

Keren Hayesod-United Israel Appeal donated $1 million to the Home Front Defense Ministry on Wednesday to help build bomb shelters and buy mobile shelters.
Eliezer Sandberg, world chairman of Keren Hayesod, and Yohanna Arbib-Perugia, chairwoman of the organization’s board of trustees, handed the check to Home Front Defense Minister Avi Dichter in his Sderot office.
“The donors and the activists mobilized from the very first minute,” Sandberg said. “This is the result. As in the past, Keren Hayesod will always stand by the State of Israel for every need.”
“It is important that the citizens of Israel know that world Jewry stands with them, shoulder to shoulder,” Arbib-Perugia said. “Keren Hayesod is honored to make this life-saving contribution.”
