BUILD THEM BACK: Dafna and Ela need our support

Tax deductible
On October 7th, 2023, an unspeakable terror attack shook the core of Israel and good people worldwide, leading to Dafna (15), and Ela (8.5) being held hostage for 50 harrowing days. During this time, they faced horrors that are beyond words. The tragedy decimated their home, took away beloved members of their close-knit family and community through murder or kidnapping, with many still in captivity.

Finally freed on November 26h, 2023, the Dafna and Ela face the long, challenging journey of healing from the deep-seated trauma that will, unfortunately, be a part of their lives forever.

This fund is a beacon of hope dedicated to supporting these brave souls in their quest for healing and rebuilding their shattered lives. Every dollar raised will provide a lifeline of mental and physical support — covering housing, nourishment, clothing, and other essential needs — in the days, months, and years to come as they strive to regain a semblance of normalcy.

About Dafna and Ela
Dafna is an exceptionally intelligent and astute teenager, greatly adored by her younger sister, Ela. Ela, being extremely sociable, complements her older sister well. They share a strong sisterly bond, always looking out for each other.
Tragically, Dafna and Ela were kidnapped, but not before enduring the horrific scene of their father Noam, his partner Dikla, and their step-brother Tomer being mercilessly taken from them.

Now, more than ever, Dafna and Ela need our unwavering support. Every donation, regardless of its size, is a step towards showing them that they are not alone, that we empathise with their pain, and stand firm with them in their fight to rebuild their lives. Let's embrace them with a community of support that resonates with love, hope, and resilience.

All contributions are being managed by the reputable AID Coalition (EIN 93-1616002). Rest assured, every penny will reach the freed hostages (or their legal guardians if minors) or be applied for their benefit (no administrative fees are being retained by AID-Coalition), ensuring that the families receive the support they desperately need.

Let’s reassure them that they are not alone, and that we stand with them, not just through the harrowing time, but through their recovery ordeal as well. Plus, your kind gesture is tax deductible.
