Ron’s choice of Project:
JNF Major Campaign 2022 – Protected Playgrounds
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 safe place to play. It’s what every child deserves.
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?
With your generosity, we will build this.
Every contribution – big or small – will go towards building these protected outdoor areas.
This includes funding for:
Playground equipment, such as slides, sandboxes, swings
Vegetable garden beds
While also helping these children:
Enjoy greater wellbeing
Experience a sense of normality
To have an emotional escape from the threats they endure
