Emergency Relief Fund

“‘Comfort, O comfort My people’, says your God.” Isaiah 40:1

This relief project, also know as “Operation Restoration,” exists to practically assist Israelis during times of conflict by relocating families away from war zones, providing financial assistance to rebuild homes and businesses, and strengthening the war-torn communities. We also provide unwavering emotional support to families who have suffered trauma throughout the different conflicts in Israel. If we can build up people, families, and communities that have suffered because of war, we have victory over our enemies who want nothing more than to see the people of Israel fall into despair. By blessing those suffering the devastating reality of war, and comforting Israel in her time of distress, we are answering the call to comfort those in affliction with the comfort we ourselves have received in the LORD.

We can never anticipate exactly when the next war will come, yet we are committed to standing by these communities who live in such close proximity to enemy lines. We continue to pray and trust God for His protection and provision.

History

Our emergency relief fund (Operation Restoration) was established in the summer of 2006 during the Second Lebanon war between Israel and the Lebanese terror group, Hezbollah. Moran, who was based in the United States at that time, was speaking to a friend in northern Israel during the war. Suddenly, he heard air raid sirens screaming and in the background and his friend and her family had to relocate to the bomb shelter indefinitely. He realized that this was the time to do something to help; God was presenting an opportunity to reach out and minister to those suffering in Israel. He was reminded of the word “restoration” that had come to him in his prayer time earlier that day. It was then that “Operation Restoration” was born. To date, HFI has brought hundreds of individuals and families relief from the past 11 years of war and conflict in Israel. We are grateful to have a part in Israel’s physical and spiritual restoration!
