BUILD THEM BACK: Hila needs our support

Tax deductible
On October 7th, 2023, an unspeakable terror attack shook the core of Israel and good people worldwide, leading to Hila (13) being held hostage for 49 harrowing days. During this time, she 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 25th, 2023, Hila now faces the long, challenging journey of healing from the deep-seated trauma that will, unfortunately, be a part of her 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 she strives to regain a semblance of normalcy.

About Hila

Hila is super friendly and kind-hearted, she loves TikTok, Sushi and riding her skateboard. Her mom, Raaya (54), was released four days later. Her friend Emily was released on November 25th with her.

Now, more than ever, Hila needs our unwavering support. Every donation, regardless of its size, is a step towards showing them that she is 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.
