Naomi woke one morning at 6 a.m. to the sounds of her windows shattering.
At first, she was confused because the missile sirens had not gone off to warn people of danger … but it didn’t take Naomi long to realize the Holy Land was under attack. Quickly, she and her youngest son fled to a bomb shelter.
Naomi is one of countless people whose life was changed when the Holy Land came under attack. Innocent civilians like her are caught in the crossfire and struggling to survive without access to food, water, and more. People are terrified … and they have no idea what’s coming next.
Watch this video for an update on what life is like in the Holy Land:
It was in this bomb shelter that a small World Help team visiting our partners on the ground met Naomi.
Naomi — whose name has been changed to protect her identity — is no stranger to hardship.
Her parents disowned her because of her faith in Jesus Christ. And for the past 15 years, Naomi has lived in a constant state of uncertainty because of the longstanding conflict within the Holy Land.
But this time, it feels a little different.
As the killing continues, people are also being kidnapped by Hamas soldiers and taken into the Gaza Strip — causing fear to run rampant.
In the face of the unknown, Naomi is working hard to meet the needs of other people who are either displaced or sheltering in place because of the war. Naomi has been working 12-15 hours a day since the start of the war, helping people find food, water, medicine, and other basic necessities.
As the war escalates, people in the Holy Land live in constant fear of attack
But as Naomi tries to help others, she worries she won’t be able to provide for her own children.
It’s too dangerous to leave the bomb shelter most days. When she can, the markets are either closed or the shelves are empty.
Now, Naomi has a new fear. Even if she and her son are protected from missile strikes, she worries they will starve to death before the end of the war.
