During Operation Protective Edge, Soroka Hospital saved the lives of many IDF soldiers who were wounded • Yesterday their friends came to volunteer and help hospital staff

Dozens of Golani and Givati Soldiers came to Soroka Hospital yesterday as part of the Ametz Lochem (Adopt a Fighter) project run jointly by the Association for the Wellbeing of Israel’s Soldiers, IFCJ/Keren Hayedidut and Yedioth Aharonoth. The soldiers came to show the hospital their appreciation for saving the lives of their friends, lent helping hands in the departments, painted benches, organized store rooms and more.

Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, President and Founder of the IFCJ and Chairman of the Adopt a Solider Project, who worked alongside the soldiers said, “Many of the wounded soldiers were treated with equipment the IFCJ donated. It’s a great honor for us to be part of this project…”

Soroka Director Dr. Ehud Davidson said, “Two months ago, the situation was completely different, when they fought in Gaza and we fought here for the lives of the wounded.”
