Dear One Family Friend, Elul, 5773-August, 2013
Linoy Zohar lost the life she knew in February 2004, when a terrorist blew himself up on the bus she was riding on her way to school. She suffered severe burns and shrapnel wounds; eight other passengers were killed, and 40 were severely maimed.
Miraculously, most of Linoy’s physical injuries have healed; however she continues to suffer from serious post-traumatic stress. Despite her challenges, she willed herself to succeed, and with help from One Family Fund, she has indeed done so.
At age 26, Linoy recently graduated from university with straight As, having gathered enough courage to once again board the two busses required to get to campus. One Family has been at Linoy’s side from the beginning of her ordeal, and continues to support her ongoing psychological treatment, and dire financial situation resulting from her mother’s recent cancer diagnosis.
