The Good News Is

There is improvement in condition of Terror Victims of Sunday's bombing

Arutz Sheva: The condition of the young man who was very critically wounded in Sunday's bus bombing in Jerusalem has improved amazingly, his doctors say. Suffering from massive bleeding when he was brought to the hospital, the doctors first carried out "damage control," as they put it, and then went on to carry out "repairs." His life is no longer in danger. Two others of the 26 who are still hospitalized are still in serious condition.

A soldier who was seriously hurt while fighting terrorists in Bethlehem last week - David Yosef ben [son of] Ofrah Clara, a resident of Eli - is also making a recovery described as miraculous. Though shot in the head or neck area, and declared clinically dead when he arrived in the hospital, he has no spinal or brain damage, and is now able to get out of bed and walk around. He has a long recuperation period ahead of him.
We can send Purim Packages (shalach manos) to Terror Victims through NAVAH.

Or donate to this year's NAVAH seder for survivors (make sure to write "Passover Seder" in the comments section).
