A safe place to play. It’s what every child deserves.

For this year’s annual campaign, we’re building protected playgrounds for at-risk children in the Negev. However, we can’t keep these kids safe, without your kindness and generosity.

Will you help us protect these precious children?

For many children and their families in the Sha’ar HaNegev region, safety is a wish – not a reality. Over the last 15 years, they have lived in fear, as they live a life under fire.

In May 2021, the violence escalated, culminating in the worst attack yet – when a sophisticated Hamas missile struck a kindergarten.

Although the kindergarten was closed at the time, this incident highlighted the urgent need for safe play areas.

A critical need. An immediate impact.

JNF is partnering with the Sha’ar HaNegev communities to build green and protected environments for 14 kindergartens across the region. Because safe play should be a right, not a luxury.

Similarly, the playgrounds will provide protection against unpredictable threats.

So, will you help us offer safety and hope to these children who need it most?

An attack can occur at any time, on any day
– without warning

Kindergarten is a place where children should be safe.

Help us build a place where kids can be kids

With your generosity, we will build this.

Every contribution – big or small – will go towards building these protected outdoor areas.

This includes funding for:

  • Fencing
  • Playground equipment, such as slides, sandboxes, swings
  • Grass
  • Vegetable garden beds
  • Shelters

While also helping these children:

  • Stay safe
  • Enjoy greater wellbeing
  • Experience a sense of normality
  • To have an emotional escape from the threats they endure

How you can play your part?

Your gift today will bring moments of joy – and a world of peace to parents who need it most.

At the same time, you will be helping us safeguard and strengthen communities in the Negev to ensure the future of Israel.
