In 2007, a wave of African refugees reached Israel. The Israeli military took the refugees in, but a day later they could be found on the streets because those in power refused to take responsibility for them. The only help offered was by individuals and former refugees who toiled day and night to procure food, clothing and shelter for the newcomers.
