Israel is under attack.
Sirens pierce the air. Fear grips like a vice.
15 seconds is all they have. 15 seconds to run to safety.
In just 15 seconds, you could prepare to donate to our “Smiles for Sderot” appeal.
Help us to help Sderot in Israel and the UK
The ZF, together with North West Friends of Israel (NWFOI) Sussex Friends of Israel (SFI) and the Israel Advocacy Movement (IAM), are running this emergency campaign #SmilesForSderot, to help the children of Sderot and help fund our work in the UK, empowering our supporters – through street demonstrations and rallies, speaker events and advocacy training – to stand up for Israel in an oft difficult and hostile environment.
For Sderot, your generous donation will go toward the completion of Sderot’s Resilience Treatment Centre, a bomb proof facility where Sderot’s children can be treated for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Please use the form below to donate to this appeal.
None of our work is possible without your generous donations.
Fact: In Sderot, near to the Gaza border, it is estimated that approximately 63% of children living there suffer from PTSD.
Quote from Alon Davidi, the Mayor of Sderot: “Sderot is in a stage of emergency. Unfortunately, this reality is forced upon us every
few months with no solution in sight and those who suffer the most are our children.”
