The next workshop for Israel's Lone Soldiers will take place in October / November

S. was born in London, England where she lived until age 14 and decided to move to Israel. In December 2012, she enlisted as a combat medic and served with a tank division in Hebron. S. participated in a pre-release workshop, then undertook multiple meetings with her advisor and financial advisor. "It’s not a given that a program for lone soldiers released from the army exists, especially when there’s no-one else to turn to."

"I never really liked living in England and always felt like home was in Israel. There were a lot of ups and downs throughout my army service. The most challenging part was the medic's course. It was three intensive months with a lot of classroom study. We studied trauma, pharmacology, and a lot of other basic stuff you need to know. Because it’s a medic course for combat, there are also a lot of practical, physical aspects. I want to study medicine and it is really hard to get accepted in Israel. Special people have been helping me and giving me everything I need in terms of tools I can use."

The next workshop for Israel's Lone Soldiers will take place in October / November and you can support the program!
