Partners and sponsor of Dror for the Wounded Fundation www.drorfoundation.org
Every year many brave soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) become wounded while putting their lives on the line to protect the State of Israel, the land of the Jewish people. Many of these wounds are life-threatening and profoundly life-altering. Established in Israel during December 2005, then in the US in 2006, the Dror for the Wounded Foundation targets severely wounded soldiers in the greatest financial need. These soldiers are often the ones who participate in the most dangerous assignments.
The Ministry of Defense (MOD) does an excellent job providing support for the wounded warriors of the IDF. However, often these injuries lead to financial and other problems beyond what the MOD can cover. Thus, the Foundation’s purpose is to supplement government services that are currently being provided by evaluating each soldier’s individual and specific needs.
