Gratitude for a life-saving rescue in the Arava desert
Dear Elad, commander of the Arava Search & Rescue Unit and the amazing staff!!
On a recent Tuesday evening, you rescued our family and accompanied us through a very traumatic event in which we fought for an hour and a half to keep our daughter alive.
After she was evacuated by helicopter to the hospital, you stayed with us until we finished the trail that we were on, in the dark making sure that we were safe and that we got to the hospital in Be'er Sheva -- the moment that we exited the trail.
Your time with us was filled with sensitivity, patience, willingness to help, unlimited support, lots of listening, professionalism, and making us feel safe. We knew we would be safe with you all and that we would be OK.
There are no words to describe the support we received from you and the importance of that support during the time we spent together.
With so much appreciation and gratitude to you,
The Bar Lev family
