CHILDREN OF MISSLE CITY

Paradigm Shift supports this important documentary, and the work of the The Coping Center Sderot is the only city on Earth targeted by 10,000 missiles in 8 years. 7400 children live in Missile City and they run for their lives an acerage of three times a day. Almost 90% suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.

The Coping Center is the only professional psychological treatment facility for Sderot children needing help dealing with life under constant attack. Soon the Center will shut down; there is no money to keep it open.

Children of Missile City follows Sderot children and their struggle to survive under the worst psychological terror that currently exists on the planet.
