Young Israelis with disabilities visited Montenegro

Young Israelis with disabilities visited Montenegro

On July 2019, the EAJC Regional office in Montenegro in cooperation with the Jewish community of Montenegro hosted a group of young people with disabilities that came from Israel.

It was for the first time that such a journey for a diverse group of young Israeli Jews, Muslims, and Christians has been arranged by the national organization for people with intellectual disabilities AKIM Israel.

While the youngsters visited beautiful Montenegro, they were received with great hospitality and entertained with a special concert program by the folklore ensemble „Montenegro“ from Podgorica. Everybody was singing, dancing, and enjoying the company of each other.

This touching visit is a great example of public diplomacy in action, which ties together people's hearts and minds.
