our impact

On October 9th 2023, just two days after a wave of upheaval swept through Israel, we launched an Instagram page under the name which aimed to unearth the harrowing and powerful stories of survivors, ultimately amplifying their voices on a global stage.


Amassing a significant following, this platform has emerged as a beacon of truth and resilience. It transcends geographical boundaries, making a profound impact worldwide and connecting with individuals by offering testimonies in multiple languages.
