Children and Youth Projects enable you to support the most precious resource in Judea and Samaria – the children and youth of Israel, the future of Israeli society. The needs are varied and include day care centers, playgrounds, youth centers and youth programs, education and special education. Indeed, CFOIC Heartland has done whatever it can to ensure that every child, regardless of its need, is given the best chance to grow and thrive.
Community Projects enable donors from all over the world to assist the communities in Judea and Samaria with their most basic needs. Each project includes a detailed description of the community and its specific need, as well as a budget that indicates the financial components of the project. Whether you are able to donate funds to cover the entire project or can donate a small amount towards a project, your contribution will make a real difference in the ability of the community to provide a vital need to its residents.
