While the dedicated professional staff and volunteers at ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran continue to provide exceptional care for our residents and rehabilitation patients within the confines of the village’s many reinforced rooms and protected spaces, 30 IDF soldiers are stationed throughout the village to shield our ADI family members from the violence and chaos that surrounds them.

With quite a few staff members who were home for the holiday still missing and many others relocated or tethered to their homes, we are starting to feel the strain of our depleted workforce.

As such, we are in URGENT NEED of funds to bolster our team of professional staff and maintain our safety and security.

Our most pressing needs include:

Food for Our IDF Protectors – $10,000: We believe that the 30 IDF soldiers stationed at ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran will remain on active duty at the village for at least a week. We must ensure that they are consistently well fed, including at least one hot meal per day.

Daycare Services for Staff Members $15,000 per week: Numerous staff members are stuck at home with their children, who are without educational programming. We must set up a temporary daycare for 40 children at the village, allowing staff members to come back to work by providing them with the peace of mind that their children are in good hands throughout the day.

Housing for Displaced Staff Members$50,000 ($10,000 per apartment): Several staff members and their families are currently homeless and in need of proper accommodations. We must equip the five brand new apartments that were just completed in the Staff & Student Village to house these families and keep them at the village, where their professional skills are so desperately needed.

Staff Incentives and Additional Recruitment – $100,000: Staff members are going above and beyond – including additional shifts and late hours – to keep our residents and rehabilitation patients happy and calm, and we must compensate them for their hard work and heroic efforts.

PLEASE DONATE NOW to help ADI secure the funds necessary to achieve these urgent staffing and security needs.

We need your support!
