Since 2006, we have always been there for our soldiers – and we always will. From its inception during the 2006 Second Lebanon War, Yashar LaChayal has been at the forefront of providing humanitarian support for Israeli soldiers. During the war, a small group of volunteers worked together to purchase, collect and package much-needed toiletries, clothing, and other supplies and transported them directly to the soldiers on the front. On occasion, the volunteers themselves had to take shelter as rockets and mortars rained down all around them. They drove far north, beyond the last civilian, to deliver supplies to the soldiers who were mobilized hastily and were running low on essentials. These volunteers met army units about to cross the border and sent additional supplies to soldiers stationed deep in Lebanon.
