This week saw a spike in tensions between Israel and Gaza after a rocket fired from Gaza hit a house in the agricultural community of Mishmeret in central Israel and destroyed it completely, wounding seven people. Israel responded with airstrikes on scores of Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, and Palestinian terror groups launched dozens of rockets at Israeli communities in the Gaza periphery. Attacks like these can be not only physically damaging to the people of this region but also causes psychological scars. WIZO provides desperately needed emotional support services to children and their families in the south in the town of Sderot, and serves hundreds more infants and toddlers in our three day care centers in the war-torn city.
