Imagine being in your kitchen when a rocket plows through the wall? That’s what happened overnight to a Sderot family.
The Gaza Strip border town of Sderot is where twelve rockets were fired at southern Israel from the Strip on Thursday evening Aug 20th and in the early hours of Friday morning Aug 21st.
The residents are shell-shocked with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), in addition to being financially constrained (lack of businesses in the area now). They’re “holding down the fort” there . . . but how much really can people take? The coronavirus situation has dramatically increased the oppression they feel on a daily basis.
Let’s work towards getting more supplies to Sderot via the Sderot Aid Center. We are currently supplying them with supplies and food bags.
When you are in a bomb shelter, and fear coming out of it, you need basic supplies like large multi-use bags, paper goods, etc. like the Israel Relief Aid supplies shown. But they also need all kinds of other things, especially for growing babies and children. Also, items for the elderly who need extra help.
The people of Sderot feel forgotten. Times when
we have given to them lately, we have seen them cry.
They are so deeply appreciative, and just feel loved that people acknowledge what they go through.
If you feel led to join us in blessing the Israelis living near the border in the city of Sderot, please join us in supplying to Sderot. We simply can’t forget them.
