Israeli Border Guard Volunteers Open "Lone Soldier House" in Preparation for Upcoming War


Jerusalem, Israel (PRWeb) January 15, 2007 -- The American & Israeli registered non-profit organization "Guardians of Jerusalem" signed the contract for the house in December of 2006 and is set to open its doors in February 2007. The organization is run entirely by American/Israeli volunteer Border Guard soldiers in Jerusalem Israel.

The Lone Soldier House is a new undertaking for organization, which was originally established for the purpose of raising funds for equipment for volunteer Border Guard soldiers in Jerusalem.

"Because we are also in the Border Guard units that we fund, we see & experience first hand the dangers and stresses that the soldiers face every day" says Jamie Ben David, Guardians of Jerusalem director and volunteer Border Guard soldier. He adds "When we came back from the war in Lebanon we returned to our families and we saw that the Lone Soldiers (soldiers without any family in Israel) had nowhere to go. They had no home to go to in which to unwind after the war. It was a really difficult situation".

Following a recent tour of the Golan Heights with San Francisco Chronicle reporter Matthew Kalman, Ben David comments " After our return from the Golan in November it was clear that we headed for another war. We realized that we needed to quickly put together a project that would help Lone Soldiers returning from combat zones before, during and after the war".

"We believe the Lone Soldier House will make a substantial impact in the lives of these young soldiers" says Chaim Tannon founding member of the organization & Border Guard volunteer "The Lone Soldier House will contain a mini movie theatre, free computer internet & e-mail access, global VOIP phones for calling family members all over the world, sleeping quarters, Video games, Table games, free meals and a number of other amenities."

The Lone Soldier House is also serving as a launch pad for their third project in which the organization has plans to fund the living expenses for newly released Lone Soldiers while they are attending college after military service.

Funds for the Lone Soldier House have slowly begun to come in from supporters of Israel in the US. The organization is funding the project through a "Sponsor a soldier" format in which donors can choose to sponsor one or multiple soldiers for participation in the Lone Soldier House.
