Song for Israel has been collecting donations to give to Operation Lifeshield to build a bomb shelter at the Eden Center, just two miles from the Gaza border, Israel. So far, we have collected $4, 279.50 toward the shelter that will cost $14,000. There are 50 at-risk teenage girls at this boarding school who have escaped abuse or terror to find refuge in this school. However, this area is often a target of Hamas rockets. At least once a week, a siren is heard and the girls only have 7 seconds to reach safety in one of the previously-installed shelters. Another shelter is needed for the far side of the campus, which is too far to run in 7 seconds. Please watch the video below.
You can help save lives of young women in Israel by donating to our Bomb Shelter Campaign for this Eden Project. The campaign ends June 10, 2015. We will be presenting our final check to Operation Lifeshield in person on our Israel trip.
