There are over 7,000 soldiers classified as Lone Soldiers in the IDF. They come from different backgrounds, from all over the world, with one thing in common – they are exceptional human beings, leaving behind the comfort of home, family and friends to protect the Jewish homeland.
There are also Israeli soldiers with a designation similar to Lone Soldier – those who have no connection to their families. Perhaps an ultra-Orthodox family is unwilling to accept the fact that a child is serving in the IDF, or a family may have been forced to relinquish a child due to divorce or financial difficulties. These soldiers are alone, suffering tremendous hardship – serving in combat units while juggling psychological and financial challenges.
In all these cases, Yashar LaChayal provides Lone Soldiers with what they need, when they need it. Over the years, we have provided lone soldiers with the necessities – food coupons, beds and basic appliances – as well as a human being to turn to whenever necessary. Regardless of the circumstances, Yashar LaChayal is there.Donate
