David joined the Jewish National Fund (JNF) to raise funds for the creation of a “Green Belt” in the Be’er Sheva region of Israel.
David has taken part in this great initiative every year he has been an MP and organises for other local MPs to lend a hand on the day.
The JNF chose this area as a message of support to the communities in the Be’er Sheva region who were under attack recently.
This planting will provide a source of shade and recreation for all the inhabitants of the region. The trees will help preserve ecological balance by preventing soil erosion in the Negev and will help offset the effect of carbon emissions.
