In March, the IDFWO Organization sent four delegations on a special vacation to Dubai. One of the delegations consisted of approximately 100 participants adult orphans and their spouses. The trip included a tour of the cities of Dubai and Abi Dhabi, as well as visits to various street markets, among other attractions. Included in the activities was a meeting hosted by the Israeli to the UAE, Mr. Amir Hayek.
Retreats abroad take place every six months, each time to a different attractive destination. The experience is unique and allows participants to connect with each other from a perspective of both enjoying themselves and processing their loss in a safe, inclusive environment.
