About 6500 "Lone Soldiers" serve in the IDF. Almost half of these "Lone Soldiers" are Jews or Israeli citizens, that were raised outside Israel. The soldiers from abroad voluntarily leave a usually pleasant and comfortable life to commit themselves to dangerous military service in the Holy Land. These young soldiers not only lack family comforts and support but usually experience financial hardships during their military service.
The following video explains the "Wings project" which supports lone soldiers which come to Israel from all corners of the earth. Their appreciation and thanks for the support they receive are expressed in their own words. Without this support it would be more difficult to cope without family support.
Your support helps Wings support "Lone Soldiers". We will report on the next "Lone Soldier" support workshop. These workshops offer counselling and practical support for "Lone Soldiers" that are nearing the completion of their military service and continues after their release. The support helps "Lone Soldiers" successful absorption into regular Israeli society after their release.
