Orna's photographs, tell the story of our Sea Days.  The photos have traveled to Bad Laasphe, Germany where the project is displayed as a reminder that when a human being is treated humanely there is another way.

Orna's lens captures the initial hesitations to meet the volunteers and the sea.  She is also there when trepidation turns to laughter and cries of joy.
