Yonatan Pinto was stationed on the Gaza border when Hamas terrorists launched their surprise attack on October 7. A missile hit his tank, and in an instant, his world went black. Blinded by a shower of shrapnel and covered in burns, he faced a daunting eight-hour journey to safety—motivated solely by the will to survive.
In the aftermath, he still can’t see anything more than shapes and shadows; doctors estimate he only has about 5% of his vision. He has asked if we can provide a wearable camera designed specifically for people with blindness. The voice-activated technology reads text and can even recognize faces of family and friends. The cost is $4,500 and we are asking for your help.
There are countless more soldiers just like Yonatan who share his pain and live with the physical scars of this horrific war. They desperately need our help purchasing medical devices like this one.
