Yashar LaChayal has been helping soldiers since 2006. Yashar LaChayal builds and maintains Warm Corner rest stations for soldiers on patrol, responds quickly to cases of injured soldiers and offers them assistance, and aids bereaved families in many ways. In addition, we supply work closely with needy soldiers, maintaining Needy Soldiers Supply Closets filled with toiletries, blankets, socks and other necessities, and distributing food baskets to needy soldiers and their families for the holidays. Yashar LaChayal also works closely with Lone Soldiers, ensuring that they have the goods they need and a support system during and after their service. Additional projects are described in detail on our website: www.yasharlachayal.org.
Every donation goes directly to the soldiers. We are grateful recipients of a grant that funds all our operating expenses, so all other money is used to make purchases for the soldiers.
You can show your support for the IDF combat soldiers by adopting a unit, or by raising money to provide soldiers with specific goods.
