‘Adopt a soldier’ – Our companies, together with the Association for the Wellbeing of Israel’s Soldiers, adopts several IDF units and bases, organizes joint activities and contributes to the wellbeing of soldiers.
During 2014, ICL Fertilizers continued its support of the Bedouin Desert Reconnaissance Battalion and ICL-IP continued its support of the Rimon Battalion and Givati Brigade Headquarters. These segments have committed to an annual donation of NIS 100,000 for three consecutive years, in addition to organizing joint activities. They also plan to incorporate officers and soldiers into ICL and offer higher education and employment opportunities.
In addition, we adopted a branch of the Lone Soldier Center in Memory of Michael Levin in Beersheba, and contributed equipment, such as furniture, TVs, sound systems and kitchen equipment. Our employees in the south were asked to host lone soldiers on weekends and for holiday and Shabbat meals – an initiative that received a large and positive response from our employees.
