“Packing in the Love”
We often take everyday things for granted – such as a warm blanket on a cold winter night, or an ice cold water bottle on a hot summer day. Sometimes it is hard for IDF lone soldiers to access these basic necessities. At Chayal el Chayal we focus on these small details which enhance and create a better army experience for our lone soldiers, making sure that whether they are on or off base their basic needs are covered.
Chayal el Chayal takes pride in distributing care packages for holidays and to newly drafting soldiers. It’s always a major operation preparing the packages, with 300 to 1,400 soldiers receiving them each holiday. For pre-drafting soldiers, we often reach out to people around the world who send basic necessities for the soldiers such, as socks, deodorant, toothpaste and more. The soldiers really get to see and understand that there are people around the world who appreciate them for protecting our land. We also encourage school projects, both in Israel and around the world, wherein children write letters to lone soldiers, which is another way for these heroes to feel the warm embrace of the greater Jewish family.
