Israeli Communities Under Attack
Communities in southern Israel suffered a barrage of over 400 rockets in a few days. Homes & businesses have been damaged, dozens of Israeli civilians have been injured - some have died - and people in communities near the Israel/Gaza border were confined to bomb shelters. They suffered intense terror, and many of the children are exhibiting signs of post-traumatic stress.
Hope for Israel has initiated our Emergency Relief Fund, “Operation Restoration,” to give a specific community a time of rest and renewal after suffering an intense round of attacks. One young woman from the community wrote about her experience:
"All day long I've been feeling strangely… overwhelmed by the two terrible days we've been through, not understanding how we can simply go on with the routine, as if we have not just experienced such an intense trauma.
The first barrage caught me outside while I was walking my baby girl. It's impossible to describe what goes through a mother's head when she knows she has no way of protecting her baby. Because in 10 seconds (which was all we had before the first rocket hit) we had no chance of reaching a protected space."
