(JNS) — The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews has donated an $80,000 security vehicle to the city of Ma’ale Adumim, located southeast of Jerusalem.
The new Isuzu off-road vehicle will be used by local authorities for patrols and to provide an immediate response throughout the city, as well as in an adjacent industrial area where the security situation is more complex.
“Thank you to the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews for its contribution to the city of Ma’ale Adumim, to its security and its development. Our partnership with the Fellowship is beneficial to the betterment and well-being of the community,” said Ma’ale Adumim Mayor Benny Kashriel.
Added IFCJ president Yael Eckstein: “With the generous support of our hundreds of thousands of donors and supporters around the world, I’m proud to have this opportunity on behalf of the Fellowship to contribute to the security and safety of the city and its residents.”
The donated vehicle joins four other armored vehicles recently provided by the IFCJ to security officers operating in Israeli towns near the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
IFCJ has been involved in various programs and providing aid to the Ma’ale Adumim region, with a budget of some $200,000 over the past three years.
In addition to security support, IFCJ works in coordination with the Israeli Ministry of Welfare and the municipality’s Social Services Department to provide food and emergency support to the elderly and needy.
