The numbers, unfortunately, don’t lie.
As a result of Hamas’s vicious attack against Israel on October 7th:
220+ people were kidnapped. Of those 220+ kidnapped, 40 were children (anyone to the age of 18).
110 hostages have been released, 38 of them children. 2 young children, Kfri (9 months) and Ariel (4), are still being held captive by Hamas.
33 people were killed and held captive by Hamas.
129 people are still being held captive in Gaza.
The worldwide campaign to pressure Hamas to release the hostages has been incredible.
But what happens next?
The hostages who were freed did not come back to calm and peaceful homes. They are rehabilitating while Israel is at war and fighting for its right to exist.
Most of the freed hostages live in border communities destroyed by Hamas on October 7. Tragically, they no longer have homes to return to. Their families, if they survived the attack, are displaced and scattered throughout the country. How can they recover if they don’t have the nurturing environment that’s necessary to heal?
That is where you come in.
Your assistance enables us to establish the vital foundation survivors need to start rebuilding their lives.
Because of your generosity, we’re able to provide critical psychological services the victims require to begin their healing process, as well as the financial assistance necessary for families who are struggling.
We are committed to providing resources that will help families rebuild their lives, offering a nurturing environment and paving the way for a future of independence, meaning and happiness.
Your contribution will have a profound impact on the released hostages and their families.
In partnership with the Prime Minister’s office, we’re working with over 130 professional volunteers, pairing every released hostage with a volunteer. These volunteers will do all they can to ensure the returned hostages are not forgotten and that they receive all the government benefits they are entitled to.
Working with the government enables us to work directly with all of the released hostages, so that we can provide tailored support that directly addresses their individual needs, when and where it is needed.
Hamas took 40 beautiful and vulnerable children hostage. These children experienced terrible trauma. Some are still afraid to raise their voices above a whisper. No one knows what the long-term impact of their captivity will be, and how it will impact their psychological health.
The hostages and their families are heroes. Their bravery, strength, and endurance in the face of absolute evil are an inspiration to us all.
But they need our help to rebuild what Hamas destroyed.
Working with you to help these courageous Israelis reconstruct their lives is both a privilege and an honor. Your generous contributions deliver essential material support and critical psychological and trauma counseling to families in distress. You play a pivotal role in empowering these families to begin their journey towards healing, helping them to regain their strength and rebuild their broken dreams.
Together, we can give hope to the brave survivors and see a better tomorrow!
