Yad Sarah participated in the largest annual professional tourism fair of its kind in the eastern Mediterranean, held at the Tel Aviv Exhibition Grounds, and, like other international tourist fairs, it serves to promote incoming, outgoing, and domestic tourism, as well as to strengthen cooperation between tourist entities in Israel and around the world. Anyone who has a connection to the world of tourism participates in the exhibition. Yad Sarah took the opportunity to set up a booth and tell thousands of visitors about the services and activities intended for both Israeli tourists and visitors from abroad. Yad Sarah's tourist service, under the directorship of Nadia Allalu, enables disabled people to visit Israel, offering special tourist services from the moment they land in Israel and throughout their stay. Yad Sarah has a wide variety of medical equipment – wheelchairs, walkers, hospital beds, canes, etc – available for borrowing and will outfit a hotel room or apartment with any accessories needed. Yad Sarah also operates a fleet of vans especially suited to transport people in wheelchairs and those that accompany them, and will pick up tourists at the airport and arrange for guided tours suited to those with physical limitations. In addition, Yad Sarah is offering a course on guiding trips for people with special needs. The course, in cooperation with the Ministry of Tourism, includes five sessions, and will provide guides with tools and information to help them guide trips for people with special needs. The public relations department prepared special publications and information sheets for the exhibition and a PR team was on hand to answer questions: Rachel Dover, from the International Desk; Ahuva Zaken, course coordinator for tour guides; Malka Melamed and Zelina Ben Gershon from the Tourist Service. In the photo: (from right to left) Rachel Dover from the International Desk; Amir Halevy, Director General of the Ministry of Tourism and Ahuva Zaken, coordinator of the course for tour guides.
