In honour of the 25th anniversary of the founding of the New Israel Fund in the UK, we are launching a special Legacy Giving Campaign. Our ambitious campaign will make sure that NIF continues to be there to fight for Israel’s democracy as times change and new challenges arise.
Two weeks into Israel’s COVID-19 vaccination distribution plan, roughly 1.87 million of its 9 million citizens had received the COVID-19 vaccination—more than 16 percent of the population. By January 4, Israel had inoculated a higher proportion of its population than any other country, a major testament to its highly mobilized, universal health-care system.
As 2020 comes to an end, a year of deep crisis across the world, we reflect on how it affects us all in profound ways. We know that this is a tough time for everyone. Covid has slowed down the rhythm of lives everywhere, but it has also exacerbated existing problems.
The pandemic exposed deep vulnerabilities in society and exacerbated already existent fractures in Israel’s safety net. In light of this monumental challenge, how could anyone believe we could be successful in protecting the society, democracy and equality in Israel? The answer is so simple: It was all because of you.
NIF grantee Physicians for Human Rights Israel (PHRI) sent a small delegation of doctors to Gaza along with medical equipment to help respond to an increasingly dire COVID-19 surge.
After incendiary remarks by the Minister of Internal Security, NIF grantee, The Aguda – Israel’s LGBT Task Force launched a social media campaign shedding light on injustices facing LGBTQ in Israel.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, NIF is protecting the most marginalised and vulnerable communities, defending civil liberties and democracy, and maintaining a vibrant and strong civil society.
