Project Spotlight: Mobile Bomb Shelters
The Fellowship | November 19, 2019
Last week, hundreds of rockets and mortars were fired into Israel. More than one million innocent elderly, families, and children were within range of the rockets and missiles. The rockets have stopped for now, but there is still more work to be done to ensure Israelis are safe if more rockets fall.
Security officers in the region informed us that one of their greatest needs right now is for more bomb shelters, so that Israelis have quick access to a shelter at a moment’s notice.
So, in addition to funding emergency needs of those affected by these recent attacks, we are also providing over 25 mobile bomb shelters along Israel’s southern border with Gaza.
We are placing shelters in strategic areas – near children’s playgrounds, bus stops, and community parks. Since Israelis never know where they’ll be when a code red siren sounds, putting more bomb shelters near public areas gives them confidence that they are always close to a shelter as they go about their daily routines.
