EVP is launching a dedicated operation in coordination with Israeli municipalities and the IDF’s Homefront Command to provide fresh hot meals and other support to newly arrived Ukrainian Refugees and immigrants to Israel because of the war in Ukraine.
EVP has the tools and the volunteer manpower to conduct this operation, however we need to raise $300,000 in order to provide hot meals over the coming weeks.
The devastating war in Ukraine has no clear end in sight and has led to millions of refugees fleeing Ukraine. Israel has become a temporary or permanent home to thousands of these and more are expected to arrive daily.
As an organization dedicated to the safety and security of Israel, we feel obligated to do everything in our power to contribute to thus unparalleled crisis. EVP is currently developing several operational plans in close coordination with the Israeli and Ukrainian governments.
EVP has a long track record of deploying firefighters and medics form the United States to Israel in every military operation and natural disaster Israel has faced since 2009.
Although known for our deployments of American firefighters and medics to Israeli cities during war and disaster, we also operate mobile kitchens capable of feeding thousands per day in Israeli border towns under rocket attack. We also deployed these kitchens extensively during Covid as well.
