ISRAEL — Samaritan’s Purse airlifted and distributed 24,000 boxes of gifts over Christmas for Israeli boys and girls.
Ken Isaacs – Vice President of Programs & Government Relations Samaritan’s Purse:
And today I’m in Moshavim, Israel. We brought 24,000 gifts into the country and we’re distributing them primarily in two of these regional council areas. We wanna help the children and bring some joy. We want the children to know that God loves them.
Shai Hajaj – Head of Regional Councils:
So thank you to all the community and to all the people that help us. I think there is now a connection between the communities, not only the boxes, not only the donation, this is connection between people. So thank you a lot for everything that you do for our council. Thank you.
