Adorable kids hug adorable stuffed animals to ward off missile trauma in As

Below is a blog posting from Sigal of the 'Focus on Ashkelon' blog, who has kindly granted us re-use permission. She visited a kindergarten in Ashkelon to see the kids and their Hibuki therapy stuffed animals, which kids in rocket-range areas of Israel are given. During red alerts, the kids are supposed to concentrate on comforting the stuffed animal, rather than on their own fear. (see more about Hibuki in this 'Southern Israel Success Stories' presentation about how federation funding is helping via the Israel Solidarity Drive)
