A Warm Home for Every Soldier is founded to support soldiers facing hardship during their military service. The organization assist all soldiers 24/7with any urgent matter that arises providing solutions including adoptive families for lone soldiers, support through injury, recovery or illness, handling financial debts, providing essential equipment, warm clothes and food vouchers in time of crisis. The organization advocates to enhance the wellbeing of IDF soldiers and to raise the soldiers wages after over a decade of stagnation.
A Warm home for Every Soldier has taken upon itself the difficult roll of struggling on behalf of IDF soldiers to obtain their rights. Soldiers may not strike or protest over their conditions, wellbeing or salaries. Unfortunately the IDF took advantage of this fact and by avoiding the soldiers’ distress have created a reality in which salaries were frozen for over a decade and many crucial issues were put aside. A Warm Home for Every Soldier has recognized the soldiers’ suffering and decided to take action against all chances. When Shifra Shahar has begun her fight several years ago, no one was ready to admit the economic problems that the soldiers were facing but she was determent to change this reality against all objections. The organization’s biggest success is the change of perspective – today the IDF admits that soldiers should be paid for all their essential costs. As a result of our activity, in the parliament, supreme court, PR and the media, the soldiers salaries have been raised twice in the past year and are due to be raised again in the coming years. We have also promoted a number of laws for the benefit of the soldiers during and after their military service
