JNF-USA Ukraine Emergency Campaign

JNF-USA Greater Los Angeles

As the situation in Ukraine unfolds, refugees are fleeing Ukraine to escape the airstrikes and shellings. In Israel, we have a huge Russian/Ukrainian population – including over 470 lone soldiers from the Ukraine – worrying about the fate of their loved ones.

JNF-USA is championing a multi-pronged effort to help, beginning with arranging buses to transport families of Lone Soldiers across the border to safety. These buses are supplied with food and essentials during transit and lodging accommodations at each of the stops along the way. We are working behind-the-scenes to expedite the process for them to enter Israel, and then doing everything to maximize their success once they are there.

Help fund one bus with a $30,000 gift today. HELP US SAVE DOZENS OF LIVES RIGHT NOW.

We proudly share below, with YOUR SUPPORT, what our affiliates are doing to support Ukrainian relief campaign once we have secured their safety in Israel.
