The organization holds enterprises and activities throughout the year, represents the widows and orphans in front of the legislature and the general public, provides emotional, social, financial support, or any other necessary support.
Joining the IDF is a special moment for all Israelis, but holds particular significance for IDF orphans and their families. To show support for our orphans, we provide them with a special heavy-duty backpack with essential supplies they will need during their service.
This program is a joint initiative of the IDFWO Organization and the Department of Families and Commemoration at the Ministry of Defense. The program was established with the aim of leveraging opportunities for the orphans to enable their growth and progress by the cultivating and nurturing their talents and skills. The project includes the formation of a think tank, which, with the cooperation of the families involved, helps explore strengths, interests, and future dreams - precisely those areas where the children need a little push and encouragement.
Just as at any significant juncture in life, we take it upon ourselves at the organization to support the widows and orphans at this important time, by way of awarding study scholarships for bachelor’s and master’s degrees, and presenting a wedding gift to newly married couples.
