Across the rocket-ravaged South, young adults in white T-shirts with imprinted red hearts are a common site at local bomb shelters, retirement homes and at-risk youth facilities, not to mention supermarkets, pharmacies and private homes. Lev Echad – Emergency Civilian Aid volunteers can be seen everywhere in their signature T-shirts, providing assistance to people and areas in need of help during the stressful time with rocket threats from the Gaza Strip.Over 2,500 volunteers are deployed across southern Israel in 11 central points, including Ashdod, Ashkelon, Beersheba, Kiryat Malachi, Dimona, Shafir, Merhavim, Bnei Shimon and Ofakim.
