In addition, we are operating in 17 cities that are within close proximity to borders and have residents who have not been evacuated. Our circles have expanded significantly, opening our volunteer opportunities to over 100,000 people who have been taking part in our volunteer activities. All of this is happening while 25% of our regular volunteers are in reserve duty.
