Ann Carew a longstanding WIZO member and supporter travelled to Israel in December and along with her partner Jack Frydman they visited Ahuzat Yeladim which they have been visiting for years and have made a personal connection to Yossi Saragossi, Director of the School.
Their annual visits to the boarding school gives them something to look forward to while they visit family in Haifa.
On the visit they spoke about their long time connection to WIZO and said that both of their mothers were avid WIZO women. They were very interested in hearing from Yossi about the rich history of Ahuzat Yeladim and were very interested in hearing about how the boarding school began. Yossi provided a brief history and actually pulled out a note book from the time of Yonatan Jonas the first director, and read a few lines about a girl named Sara who they were trying to find a host that would host her for Passover.
They visited the pet therapy area, had a chance to speak with the pet therapist and meet one of the youth.
