The Fellowship is on the ground delivering more aid to Israel’s first responders so that they can protect all of Israel. Arutz Sheva reports on our support to local communities that are most affected by the current crisis:

As attention continues to focus on Israel’s northern border, the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ) facilitated the distribution of 1,500 flak jackets and 150 first aid response kits to 105 local emergency response units (“kitot konenut”) in communities in the Golan and Galilee regions.

The distribution comes as a further step in the Fellowship’s ongoing efforts to ensure optimal equipping and response capabilities of local communities to the ongoing threats on multiple fronts.

Since the onset of the war, IFCJ has distributed over 4,100 flak jackets, 500 first responder kits and positioned 30 new mobile shelters in the north. In partnership with The Association for Israel’s Soldiers, the Fellowship has allocated two million shekel in emergency funding to 400 military families with loved ones injured in battle.
