Fleeing Ein Hod

We caught up with a group of evacuee families in temporary accommodation in Neve Yam who had fled the ahead of the fire that ended up burning their homes. We were impressed and moved by their hope and optimism despite all they had lost. One evacuee, Niv Horovitz, told us that they didn’t want to ask for help, “but sometimes you need to.” The goal isn’t just to fix the damage “but to make things better.”

In this clip, we also speak with Amir Natan, who’s not just an evacuee but a founder of JDC’s breakthrough employment program STRIVE. Also check out Amir and his family’s personal story of escaping ahead of the fire.
