The organization is a not-for-profit, volunteer-based, Non Governmental Organization (NGO) that delivers life saving aid to communities affected by natural disasters and human conflict.
We operate in places where local regimes prevent entry of formal international humanitarian organizations. We focus on countries that lack diplomatic relations with Israel, transcending differences, including prejudices, race, nationality, religion and creed.
We are a group of Israeli citizens who love their homeland and believe in a Jewish tradition and culture that values a compassionate, open-minded respect for the sanctity of human life and dignity. We believe we are blessed to be born in a democratic country that enables its citizens to travel to challenging and dangerous places.
Along with this commitment to human life, the organization is also devoted to faithfully defending Israel’s borders and citizens in the face of threat. We are a people who ingathered their exiles and built a “Startup Nation” out of a nation of refugees, a nation that achieved the pinnacle of success in the fields of science, medicine, technology, high tech and agriculture. Today, with such economic power and defense capabilities, Israel feels a moral and ethical duty to become “the voice of the voiceless” and in this particular case, even if it is the voice of the vulnerable populations among some of our toughest and cruelest enemies.
Unfortunately, the harsh reality in which the organization is operating is on behalf of the victims of Assad’s atrocities, which demands us to carry out our activities below the radar and hide our identities. This is in order to protect the lives of team members and local contacts, and to ensure the flow of victims’ needs, such as food, medicine, and basic supplies.
The members of our organization represent the pulsating heart of Israel and believe in the sanctity of human life and dignity as reflected in the Jewish “Halacha” and in the Israeli Declaration of Independence.
“Devote yourself to justice, aid the wronged, uphold the rights of the orphan, defend the cause of the widow”.
Isaiah, Chapter 1, 16-17
“The State of Israel will be based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel; it will insure complete equality of social and political rights to all its habitants irrespective of religion, race or sex; it will guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture”.
