Here in Israel, the fight against COVID-19 is taken very seriously. The country has banded together to fight the pandemic.Israel has been under mandatory lockdown for more days than any country in the world, and today, they lead the world in vaccinating its population by a wide margin.
Sitting at the forefront of the battle is the Israeli Police Force, who are on the ground ensuring that the population adheres to all of the health guidelines. But what’s less known is that many of them are also helping the thousands of Israeli’s who are in need as a result of the economic crisis.
At Meir Panim’s Or Akiva branch, a special group of police officers comes by regularly to help package and deliver food.
These officers are not immune to the COVID-19 difficulties. Being an enforcer during a global pandemic that has brought so much pain and hardship to many is not an easy position to be in. However, they continue to go above and beyond their obligated duties by giving their extra time to take care of those who are suffering the most in their communities.
Meir Panim extends a warm and heartfelt thank you to the officers who time and again show how much they care about the Nation of Israel and its wellbeing.
