Takeaways from the WIZO Aviv Mission 2018 - Marië Joshua-Querido

"This was truly a life changing experience!"

By Marië Joshua-Querido- WIZO  Belgium

The experience has left me more enlightened and aware of the work that is being done by WIZO in support of Israeli social development/society, and of the work that still needs to be done in the areas of social care, social development, education, and psychosocial support as part of the WIZO agenda.

As a social worker / psychological counselor who works in the public health and social development sectors In Belgium and South Africa, I left the mission feeling deeply inspired and motivated, but most importantly, so honoured to have been with all of the extraordinary WIZO Aviv women of light, love and service from around the world!

The program was well organized and full. We received mentorship, guidance and lessons regarding Israel and WIZO, spiritual connections were taught and made; we visited the various projects and programs, and we had hilarious bonding fun on our social outings. This was truly a life changing experience!
