Ukrainian athlete refugees train at Israeli youth villages

7 elite track-and-field athletes are among more than 50 Ukrainian youth finding refuge at Hadassah-run facilities.

Veronika, a high jumper, and Tanya, a triple jumper, said the training conditions “are superb at Hadassah Neurim — good facilities, proper and abundant food and [good] weather.”

In all, more than 50 Ukrainians are sheltering at Hadassah’s two youth villages for at-risk Israelis – Neurim, near Netanya; and Meir Shfeyah, near Haifa – through the efforts of Israel’s Ministry of Education and Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI).
