Our current shelter project will be in the Eshkol Region where we believe will be the center of the next war between Israel and Hamas. When the sirens are heard, citizens have 7-9 seconds to run for shelter. Where will they run? There is no safe place.
Song For Israel was asked to help. Hamas has been sending rockets to hit Israel's borders. One town hit most frequently is Eshkol, so our third campaign focuses on helping the city of Eshkol with a bomb shelter. This shelter is a larger shelter than requested in the past. This shelter costs $21,000. We have currently raised $17,900. We need your help to complete the project and save lives before a war breaks out.

Our first Bomb Shelter was donated in 2015 to provide shelter for children and teenagers living at the Eden Center, which is located in Sderot in the Negev region of Israel This school is for abused girls ages 12-18 and is located just two miles from the Gaza Border. Rockets land in or near this school regularly because they are so close to the border and when the sirens are heard, the girls only have 7 seconds to run for shelter. Therefore, many smaller shelters are needed for quick access. Deby Brown, Song for Israel Director, is pictured (above) with Shmuel Bowman, Executive Director of Operation Lifeshield. We are standing inside a “bell-shaped” shelter. Song For Israel donated $16,000 to pay for this.
Our second Bomb Shelter was donated to provide shelter for students at an agricultural high school in Kfar Silver (translated Silver Village). Kfar Silver is a youth village in Southern Israel, located near Ashkelon (just a few miles from the Gaza Strip), where 1,200+ students attend. The shelter donated by Song For Israel was placed on a football field. $16,000 was donated to pay for this shelter to save lives.
On one visit to Israel, Deby Brown (Director of Song For Israel) and Shmuel Bowman (Executive Director Operation Lifeshield) produced this quick video in Jerusalem:
