Imagine hearing a frightening siren blaring “Code Red,
Code Red” and having 15 seconds to run for cover.
Imagine never being able to walk beyond sprinting distance of the nearest shelter.
Can you imagine the fear and terror of a rocket whistling down, not knowing whether it will land a mile away or directly on your head?
Or the sudden shock when you feel the impact and the sense the relief that you’re still alive but the fear that your friends and family may not be so lucky.
Imagine if you were a little child and had to not only imagine all this but to live with this reality…
Portable shelters known as “Lifeshields” can be moved to where they are needed most, providing some solution to the lack of adequate underground shelters by offering both physical and psychological cover.
These state-of-the-art, free standing, portable, above ground shelters provide safety for Israeli citizens as they go about their daily lives. They are built to prevent the penetration of bullets, shrapnel and missile fragments and can withstand direct hits.
While building underground shelters can take months, these pre-form units take only a few weeks to build and can be delivered and deployed immediately.
Although these shelters cannot provide Israeli communities with peace, they can provide both safety and peace of mind.
‘Rockets into Roses’ is committing to building shelters to protect the citizens of Israel.
A portion of the proceeds of each item sold will be donated to the United with Israel Bomb Shelter Campaign.
