' talks about the 'battle' back home when a mother (or father) is left at home with the kids for weeks on end, suffering from cabin fever and who can't leave their homes for fear of another rocket attack. Hear how volunteers can and HAVE helped these supportive spouses on the home front - and, how it makes the fighters in Gaza secure that their families are being cared for! Check out their page here
