When they learned that a barrage of rockets from Gaza had hit their apartment building, Nina and her husband rushed home from work. Staring at their destroyed home, they were in shock.
At age 52, Nina felt that life had just begun to settle down. She and her husband live in the Israeli city of Ashdod, have stable jobs, and their children have been doing well. But with their beloved home and precious possessions in ruins, Nina was left dazed and shaken. Added to that, their apartment building was beyond repair and was scheduled to be demolished. All they had left were memories.
Initially, Nina was grateful that the contents of her home were covered by the Israeli government’s war compensation insurance. However, although her possessions were old but in good condition, state appraisers only reimbursed her for the actual value—which was half the amount needed to replace everything. After losing it all, how could they afford to start over?
Thankfully, friends like you were there for Nina and other victims of the bombing. Through CBN Israel, caring partners provided emergency relief so Nina’s family could purchase immediate essentials to get through this devastating time. They also offered them trauma counseling, which is helping them find hope as they recover. Nina exclaimed, “I want to thank every single donor for your generosity. We are overwhelmed by your kindness and compassion!”
