It was a typical day as Ronit left the supermarket to unload her groceries in her car when a siren wailed loudly throughout the city: Tzeva Adom (Code Red).
Panic floods her senses as only 15 seconds stand between her reaching shelter and the rocket hitting the ground. She quickly scans the area with only one thing on her mind: "Shelter. I need to find shelter".
The moment her feet enter the mobile shelter, she sighs in relief as she is greeted by other pedestrians, all grateful to find one near enough -- and in time.
Although Ronit safely returned home that day, there is no way of knowing when more missiles will be launched and if next time she will be so fortunate.
Hamas terrorists continue to receive funding to destroy the citizens of Israel in the south and in the north, on the Syrian-Lebanese border, thousands of missiles are continuously aimed at Israel as well.
For that reason, in collaboration with security system officials, Vision for Israel has placed dozens of shelters to save lives across the southern border.
Recently, Barry toured conflict areas and strategically scouted moreareas to place mobile bomb shelters, especially in high-traffic areas to fill in the gaps where no bomb shelters can be found.
With your help, Vision for Israel aims to place dozens more mobile shelters in the southern region of Israel and specifically 14 more areas in the city of Sderot, where there is a dire need. Our goal is to supply additional sheltersto the north as well.
One day Israel will reach a place of peace, but till then, we will answer evil with good and place as many shelters as we can till we reach better times.
