Neglected Bomb Shelters


In Israel, every apartment building must have a bomb shelter built underground. In the older buildings, these shelters are neglected and used to store discarded items. Some shelters do not have toilet facility or running water. These are not conditions for families to hide under rocket attacks.

Through Tikvat Am Yisrael you can provide Israeli families with clean and safe renovated shelters and restore hope to Israeli families.
Refurbishing existing neglected bomb shelters is a first step.

Letter from the Rodriguez family:

We want to thank the United Law Group for the generous funding of our bomb shelter renovation. We now have the security of knowing that if another war breaks out, we will be safe from the missiles because we now have a clean and organized bomb shelter.
During the last war in 2006, we had to hide our young sons under a staircase because the apartment building we lived in did not have a bomb shelter. After the war we moved to another apartment building that had a bomb shelter, however it was very neglected. This is a very common problem here in Israel, especially for those who can not afford to live in newer buildings.
Our sons were so afraid to even go near the bomb shelter and have been very worried about what would happen if another war were to break out. Now that our shelter has been renovated and now has such a comfortable atmosphere, the smiles on our sons’ faces reveal they no longer fear the bomb shelter.
We again want to thank the United Law Group and Tikvat Am Yisrael from the bottom of our hearts for all that you have done for our family and all the other families in our building.
