This allows warriors to do their job in the best way. When the volunteers are on the border they understand how their contribution helps. Our relationship with the organization is very important and strengthens their ties to Israel and the IDF.

The group consists of some 15 people, adults and young volunteers, who dedicate their time-all in order to contribute to.  These volunteers don’t hear complaints “volunteered earlier train communicators, and felt that the work isn’t hard enough, then insisted on coming here, says David Samson, 62 from Australia. Five years ago, David sought a way to contribute to the army and to Minister. He currently serves as a Messenger to Minister in Australia and help recruit more volunteers.

Even among volunteers age gap does not interfere with their work.  ג׳יובן Taber, 21, is part of a group that came to Israel for 10 months on behalf of the organization.
