02/12/2015 - Volunteer Ora Lior “Retires” After Eight Years of Service to Negba’s Children

In a moving ceremony, children at Negba’s "Les Cigognes" House of Hope in Beersheva paid tribute to long-time volunteer teacher Ora Lior, who is leaving Beersheva to live closer to her family. A volunteer at the House since its inception, and possibly Negba’s most senior volunteer, Ora arrived once a week for over eight years to tutor children one-on-one in various subjects. “I saw in my volunteering a duty and a heavy responsibility,” Ora said. “Each child I worked with had a customized work plan, and each child knew it was his personal time, when he was the star of the moment.”

Ora had such an influence on Negba’s children, that they would fight over the chance to receive instruction from her. “Ora’s abilities, professionalism and warmth were felt by all,” commented Hanna Geissmann, Negba’s CEO. “She will be greatly missed by the kids, and by all the staff.”

Ora emotionally summed up her years at Negba. “Negba was like a second home to me. The staff members were like my family. And the children at Negba were like grandchildren to me. I will always remember this wonderful experience I was privileged to have.”
