“Noar La’tet” from Kfar Kassem
Children from the youth movement “Noar La’Tet” (lit. youth who give) from Kfar Kassem visited at the initiative of staff social worker Aruah Faridge. Prior to their visit, the youngsters organized a special bazaar in their school in Kfar Kassem together with their counselor, Rena Sarsur. The proceeds were contributed to Friends of Schneider Children’s.
During their visit, the youngsters toured various departments in the hospital and heard explanations from the staff about activities and also met some hospitalized patients and their parents from Arab communities. “Noar La’Tet” aims to instill values of volunteerism, social solidarity and mutual exchange and compassion, in addition to promoting leadership and encouraging social initiative to improve society. The youngster’s involvement in building initiative and participating in volunteering helps them to forge a stronger society while influencing the image of Israeli youth.
