Everywhere you look in Israel the almond trees are already blossoming. This is a sign that spring is approaching. In a few weeks, Israel's south will be transformed into a beautiful red sea of flowers of countless anemones. The north-western Negev area surrounding Gaza is especially known for this phenomenon. Far too much of the nature in this area has fallen victim to the fire-kite terrorism that originated from Gaza in the last year. But nature and life are stronger than the will of our enemies. "No fire-kite can completely destroy what God has created," said Ilan of Sderot. "Flowers are beginning to grow again and people have helped us through this."
In order to help the Israeli landscape adjacent to the Gaza Strip return to fields of red flowers, we were asked to assist the local population at this time! More than 1000 different fires have destroyed around 3000 hectares of agricultural fields, pastures, trees and, among other things, 200 beehives!
The ecosystem urgently needs renewing and is important to Israeli farmers in the south, especially nectar producing trees, to assist the beekeeping industry. The beekeeping industry is of paramount importance to both nature and crop pollination.
