We were thrilled to host Foreign Minister Yair Lapid and his wife Lihi today, together with Indian Foreign Minister Dr. Jaishenkar and his wife Kyoko, who visited the Shalva National Center in Jerusalem.
The visit began with Lihi Lapid and Kyoko Jaishenk touring the Center and an introduction to the many programs run by Shalva. The ministers then joined their wives and together met with the Shalva Band. They surprised the Indian minister and his wife with a song performed especially for them in Indian. Dina, the band’s soloist was born in India and speaks Indian.
It is an honor for us to share knowledge with government representatives and serve as model of inclusion and beacon of hope for individuals with disabilities in Israel and around the world.
