Stop the Sirens - Israel Under Fire

We can’t silence them. But we can mitigate their impact. At this very moment,

while the vast majority of Israelis are living within the range of fire. You can help.

Help the tens of thousands of children, elderly, disabled and infirm living under the sirens’ blare. Ensure that children get a day of real childhood out of harm’s way.

See that food and medical supplies get to the most vulnerable populations.

Your gift is essential. Please give generously. StopTheSirens and donate today.
