Several people have contacted me from outside of Israel to ask how they can help.
Thank you JIMENA staff for compiling and sharing this list. I repost it here:
For those wishing to provide direct financial support to Israel:
Magen David Adom – Supporting 33,000 paramedics, EMTs, first responders, and first-aid providers in Israel.
NATAL: Israel Trauma Center for Victims of Terror and War – Offering mental health treatment in the realm of war-and-terror-related trauma, PTSD, and resilience-building within the community.
Friends of the IDF - The exclusive organization authorized to gather charitable donations for the soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces across the USA.
