Did you know that many Lone Soldiers don't have a heater in their home? It's true. Some don't even have proper blankets to sleep with!
The problem is that many Lone Soldiers don't have even basic household necessities.
After spending weeks on base, a Lone Soldier will come home for Shabbat and within 36 hours he will be back on base again. He doesn't have the time to take care of himself and to buy things like a heater, blankets or even a sweater to keep him warm in the winter. Frankly, even if he did have the time, an army salary is so little that he isn't able to afford it. This means that he is going to spend the winter cold and uncomfortable, and that he won't get the rest and recovery every soldier so badly needs when they come home from base.
Luckily there's now a solution. The Chayal el Chayal Winter Gear Campaign .
With your help, we're making sure that every Lone Soldier gets whatever they need to be warm and comfortable this winter.
