Sara and Miriam have lived in
the Negev desert all their lives.
But without water,
their children may not be so lucky.
For Sara and Miriam, Israel is home. Their parents
settled in the Negev over 30 years ago. Sara and Miriam
know everything there is about this region. Except for one
thing. How can they continue living here without water?
A 12-year drought has ravaged Israel, especially the Negev.
Unless water is provided soon, Sara, Miriam and young
people like them will not be able to call it home much longer.
Jewish National Fund has pledged to build 75 life-
sustaining reservoirs throughout Israel and the Negev,
so young families can continue calling Israel home for
generations to come. They are the future of Israel. And they
need your help now.
JNF has been the caretaker of the land of Israel on
behalf of Jewish people everywhere for over a century. JNF's
water projects have significantly increased Israel's water
resources through reservoir and dam construction, river
rehabilitation, water conservation and recycling. But much
more still needs to be done. We can do it. All we need is
for you to do your part. Please give generously. Together,
we can make the desert bloom and our people flourish.
