THE STORY:

Our school is trying to raise and collect money for Yemin Orde and the JNF.

"On December 2, 2010, the worst fire in Israel's history broke out in the Carmel Mountains near Haifa, destroying 5 million trees and 12,500 acres of planted forest, natural woodland, open spaces and built-up areas. After four days of continuous fighting, the Israeli firefighters succeeded in dousing the flames, but the road to recovery has only begun.

"Yemin Orde Youth Village was hit hard by the recent wildfire. Forty percent of the community’s buildings were torched. Now, we face the daunting task of rebuilding our Village so that its children and staff will, once again, have a home in the serene Carmel Forest. Our needs are great, but our spirit is mighty.

Yemin Orde Village is home to more than 500 children from 16 countries around the world. We need emergency funds to meet the children's immediate needs and to fund rapid reconstruction"

"Losses from the Carmel Forest fire, the largest in Israel's history, have been devastating. At least 42 people died, homes were lost and more than 12,500 acres of forests destroyed. JNF foresters estimate over 5 million trees were burned.

Unfortunately, the road to recovery has only just begun. Staying true to its mandate of caring for the needs of the land and people of Israel, Jewish National Fund’s (JNF) Operation Carmel Renewal: From Black to Green will help rebuild and renew the Carmel Forest.
These efforts will include erosion prevention, infrastructure restoration and clearing of debris, creation of firebreaks to prevent future fires from spreading, and care of the naturally regenerating woodlands."
