Why not consider including a visit to a UIA supported project when travelling to Israel?
You don't need to go on a mission to experience what the UIA is doing to help the people of Israel. Many of our donors find themselves in Israel for family events, business trips or simply a holiday. Why not take a day out of your schedule to see just how your money is going to improve the lives of so many people? "UIA for a Day" brings donors and volunteers up close to the tragedy which strikes many of Israel's most vulnerable citizens. On your "UIA for a Day" you'll see the different projects that UIA Australia supports throughout the country. Spend time at our Youth Villages, interacting with the at-risk children you're helping save. Meet the new Olim that are being integrated into their new home and society. Lunch with the Lone Soldiers who have left their families and dedicated their youth to join the IDF and are protecting the people of Israel.
"UIA for a Day" is a rare opportunity not afforded to normal tourists. Amidst eating at Tel Aviv's best restaurants, exploring the sacred sites of Jerusalem or hiking through the incredible forests of the Galilee take some time out to meet those who you've helped. You won't regret it and neither will they.
"We would like to thank you for organising such an amazing experience for us today. Everyone we met was so warm and welcoming. We learnt so much from Ofer Baram about living in Sderot, on the border with Gaza, and the challenges faced by the local communities. We were overwhelmed by his passion. To actually be so close to the border gave us a realistic perspective of the situation.
All the young people we met at the UIA Ayalim Project at Yachini were so inspiring and it was a pleasure to be able to hear from so many of them.
The Ayalon Centre was also such a great place to visit, with a fantastic guide who informed us about the historical significance of the work which was once carried out. Once again, we can't thank you enough for an amazing day!"
