A group of African American women heading female organizations within churches across the U.S. recently visited Israel, where The Fellowship facilitated a meeting with some Border Policewomen we support.
The group toured the Border Police's base, met the officers and commanders on site, and watched a movie about the service of the soldiers. The tour group was thrilled to meet the soldiers and gave them gifts from their hometowns.
The Border Police is the unit of choice for many Druze, Arab Christian, and Bedouin minorities who serve in the Israel Defense Forces. Many of them are also immigrants, lone soldiers (with no immediate family members in the country), or soldiers otherwise in need of extra financial assistance, so many of them receive aid from the The Fellowship.
