With over 20 years of working in the construction industry in California, Rony's professional knowledge and command of the Hebrew language allows him to expedite the efficiency of each renovation.
Working with local sub-contractors, the average length of time to complete a shelter is 4 - 6 weeks. The average cost to renovate a shelter (capacity of 40-50 people) is approximately $25,000 (US).
BOMB SHELTER COST BREAKDOWN
If your organization will sponsor the remodeling of an entire bomb shelter, we organize a "Tour of Duty" with 10-15 members to represent your organization, participate in the renovation of the shelter, interact with the residents, experience an Israeli Shabbat dinner, and also visit Israel from an Israeli perspective - we take you places that regular tourists do not see.
Upon completion of the shelter we place a plaque letting the residents know that this shelter was renovated with the love from their American friends.

Letter from the Asulin family:
It is so exciting and very heart warming to see how one person’s initiative and care turns to such big help to our families in the most difficult of times. During the 1982 Lebanese War, I was a child and then during the Second Lebanon War of 2006 I had a child of my own.
