As Wildfires Rage in Israel, The Fellowship Offers Immediate Help

Since last Tuesday, wildfires have done extensive damage in northern Israel, destroying more than 1,000 homes and forcing large-scale evacuations. Dozens of firefighting crews have been battling the blaze, including assistance from Palestinian and Greek officials. Egypt and Jordan have offered aid as well.

The Fellowship Offers Immediate Assistance to Fire Victims

For the second day, firefighters continued to battle wildfires in northern Israel, which have caused injuries and evacuations in a wide region between Haifa and Jerusalem. Israeli media reported that homes have been destroyed in the northern town of Zichron Ya’akov near Caesarea and surrounding areas, forcing families to flee without any belonging and with nowhere to go. Immediately The Fellowship responded by assessing the needs of these desperate families in Zichron Ya’akov and preparing to issue an emergency grant to help them with temporary accommodations, food, clothing, and other basic necessities.
