Fellowship donors have been helping build a reinforced trauma center in Sha'ar HaNegev, an Israeli community near the Gaza Strip where most people know someone who’s been injured or killed in a rocket attack.

Can you imagine not having access to hospital care, just because your community doesn’t have an ambulance to transport you there? This was the case for people living in the town of Rahat in Israel’s Negev desert, where poverty is widespread.

Find out how The Fellowship is changing this difficult story.
