YAMAS The uncovered units

העצמת הקהילה

Since the Iron Swords War broke on October 7, 2023, Yamas (Israel Border Police unit), have been playing a significant part in the intense fighting against Hamas, which continues to this day. During this time, Yamas fighters were exposed to multiple horrors and atrocities; they witnessed scenes of many casualties, and experienced personal losses of commanders, family members and friends. Such events have threatened and endangered their mental health, resulting in a dire and urgent need of a mental-health intervention plan. The program is adapted to the warriors’ mental challenges and operational intensity, aiming to prevent mental illness, preserve and enhance mental resilience and well-being, and increase the fighters’ physical and mental capacity, in routine and extreme situations. The annual program cost is $34,500.

Established in 1992, YAMAS Special Operations Group Foundation is a home for soldiers serving in 4 Yamas (Israel Border Police) units across Israel., We care for Yamas veterans and graduates, for reserve units and bereaved families; we work to provide for their well-being and education, as well as rehabilitation and support of wounded and trauma victims.

The Yamas warriors fought at the front line in the battles of 7/10, and to this day are active in countering terrorism in the heart of a hostile Arab population. They saved hundreds of civilians, soldiers and wounded on the battlefield and prevented a greater disaster. Unfortunately, some of them paid with their lives and many were injured.

Today, we are raising funds to restore the mental strength of these elite fighters.
