A group of 11 IDF soldiers of various ranks came to give their time at Meir Panim’s free restaurant in Dimona. They were eager to help out in any way they could, and helped with food preparation, serving, and the heavy work at the restaurant.
Many of them expressed their pleasure in taking part in this very important work.
“Israel is at war, not just with its neighbors, but also with a vicious enemy within, a.k.a. poverty,” said Ilan, the unit’s commander. “We need to fight this battle as well and as efficiently. We are proud to be part of this amazing and vital organization”.
At the end of a very long day, Ilan approached Nissim, the branch manager, and told him that he has decided to take on this project on a regular basis. “We will be back,” he said.
