Last year, Arab children diagnosed with cancer visited Israel’s only ski resort located in Mt. Hermon, in northern Israel. The children, accompanied by parents and family, enjoyed the snow and slopes along with IDF soldiers from the Alpine Unit. Their trip to the Hermon was made possible by Israeli Civil Administration, which coordinates civilian and humanitarian needs in Judea and Samaria.

The children are undergoing treatment at the Augusta Victoria hospital in Jerusalem. The Civil Administration’s Health Coordinator, Dalia Bassa and the Commander of the Alpine unit jointly organized the trip.

The Alpine Unit is an elite unit of reserve soldiers who undergo intensive training, particularly in the Mt. Hermon region. The unit carries out regional defense tactics, shooting while skiing at high speeds, snowmobilling, and riding Sno-Cats.
