The association "friends of IDF veterans wounded in service" and El Al will help 21 former IDF soldiers, among them 8 women, to fulfill the dream of climbing the Himalayas, a press release on behalf of the NGO reported.
The experience includes a 25 kilometers trek and an over 4,000 meter climb in a voyage meant to offer them a range of rehabilitation tools as well as a powerful personal experience.
The NGO was created in 2013 to promote the Israeli public's commitment to aid the recovery of those injured in service.
