A Jewish-run NGO that visits wounded and the families of terrorism victims made a family stop on Monday at the home of taxi driver Amin Shaaban, who was murdered by Nashat Milhelm in a shooting rampage in Tel Aviv in January.

“We divide the country into regions and everyone who is wounded or killed in a terrorist attack gets a visit,” Marc Belzberg, the founder and chairman of the board of the OneFamily NGO, told The Jerusalem Post.

The NGO visits include soldiers and non-Jewish victims.

OneFamily visited Shaaban’s Beduin family in Lod, including the homes of his three wives and 15 children.

“One of the regional directors met them immediately after it happened,” noted Belzberg.

Each kid under 16 received a new bike and the older children each received NIS 2,000 checks. Each of the three wives and Shaaban’s mother got NIS 3,000.

“They were happy to receive us, but nervous,” said Belzberg, explaining that receiving money publicly from Jews could cause problems with their neighbors.

They visited two of his wives in one location and a third in a separate area.

The third wife had four children from a previous marriage and five kids from Shaaban. The kids looked very upset, as Shaaban had supported them all financially and emotionally, said Belzberg.
