Wounded IDF Veteran and Ono Sportstherapy Student Tours US as Part of “Belev Echad” Program
Dana Ofir, a student at Ono Academic College will participate in the January 2022 US Campus Tour of the Belev Echad organization.
Belev Echad is committed to building a community of kindness around wounded veterans of the IDF and their families. The goal of its programs is to alleviate the extraordinary physical and emotional toll they face through educational, social, financial and cultural support.
Among other projects, Dana Ofir will serve as a College Campus Ambassador, addressing and engaging with youth at universities all over the United States.
Dana Ofir, 24, served in the IDF for 2.5 years as an officer and sports instructor for combat soldiers. While a cadet in officer school, she was wounded in a terror attack in Jerusalem. Despite her serious injuries, she decided to continue her service in order to complete her mission of serving her beloved country and home. After a long rehabilitation, including being confined to a wheelchair for 1.5 months, she returned to the IDF. Since completing her service, she has worked as a group and personal sports instructor. She is now studying sports therapy at Ono Academic College so she can treat wounded soldiers and individuals and help them fulfill their dreams and aspirations.
