Support our work

With your donation you give us the opportunity to carry out info events in the context of our initiative “SOS Sinai” (like i.e. the one on 21st of february in Cologne) or to be present with an information stand in other events. For this kind of public relations events we always need info material and we have been paying all costs privately so far. The same goes for the expenses for travel and accommodation of our guest speakers. But these events are very important, not only to inform the public about what is going on in the Sinai desert, but also to contact politicians and activists that could help us reach our goals. A part of your donation will be used to record cases of human trafficking, which is a necessary issue for our fight against this horrible crime. Furthermore, we try to offer individual help to people that we get to know during our travels to Israel and who are urgently in need. Each dollar is strongly needed and used very carefully by Desert Rose e.V. Thank you so much!
