The Need for Protection


Many times Israelis experienced days of terror from the rocket attacks and most had to hide in unsuitable conditions. These abandoned shelters were supposed to be maintained by the Israeli government but, unfortunately, funds were not available for the older buildings, thus thousands of residents were forced to find shelter in basements and under stairways.

Residents have only a few seconds to find shelter but most of the shelters are neglected.

Letter from the Abraham family:


I am not sure of being capable of expressing my feelings and appreciation for you, after what you have done for us, a new shelter. I say "new" because the old one was just a shelter, without water, no toilet, nothing.
We are living in a three floor building with nine apartments. Thanks to you, last Friday (January 7, 2009), the twelve children were not scared, running down to the shelter. Also included was one pregnant woman and some old people (including myself). What a difference it was to enter our new shelter. It felt like a miracle!
Everything has changed, thanks to you wonderful people with golden hearts. You knew how to give and how to help those in need. You deserve the best, health and happiness for what you have done for us, the people of Israel. We have suffered so much (I am a Holocaust survivor for example).
Rony Jordan did also a wonderful job (from all of his heart). Thanks and blessings for him too. God bless you! We pray for you.
