Truly, one of my favorite moments is when I get to meet real heroes. Rafi Babion, Security Chief for the Sdot Negev Region in Southern Israel is one of the great heroes of Israel, and I am grateful for the close connection we have. Rafi has guided Operation Lifeshield in the placement of shelters in his region, and has chosen locations where we can be of maximum help.
The Kibbutz Sa'ad School, located only a few miles from the Gaza border, has been hit by Kassam rockets from Hamas frequently. Most recently, this summer, one of the rockets struck next to a room adjoining the school principal's office. Thankfully, the principal was unhurt. Damage to the exterior wall told a terrifying story, as hundreds of shrapnel shards embedded the wall.
We delivered a Lifeshield Bell shelter this month to the school, and it now sits in the bus drop-off and pick-up area. Click on the thumbnail image to view the video of school and new shelter.
Also, the music in this video is especially intense, so best to crank-up the volume when watching.
Blessings from Israel, Shmuel Bowman Executive Director | Operation Lifeshield
