The journey from Sudan to Israel almost cost Orit her life

Orit recalls: “I came to Israel through the Jewish Agency’s operation Moses, which rescued thousands of Ethiopian Jews and brought them to Israel. My father, was murdered by Ethiopia’s Marxist regime. I was just a child then, but that loss drove me and my brother and sisters to move to Israel.

We started the journey to Israel on our own. The road was very hard. We moved without water and without food for six days and nights of walking.

Two days before we were about to enter Sudan, I began feeling bad and collapsed. I passed out. friends dragged me for two days, until we were in Sudan, and I was able to rest and recover.
