What are CADFA visits to Palestine?
CADFA have taken dozens of tours and hundreds of people to Palestine. These are not tourist visits although you will see historic and beautiful places. They are serious visits for people wanting to understand the human rights situation. When our visitors return to UK, we help them to find ways to be active. For this reason CADFA subsidises the costs of the visits for our members and we try to keep the costs as low as we can.
Our visits have excellent reviews. Each tour is a full programme of visits and meetings with organisations and people of many sorts, a chance to sample the rich culture of Palestine and see what has happened to the people under Israeli occupation. If you have special interests, we will do our best to make the programme suit you. The detail of a programme is worked on following reading of all the application forms.
We give full information on how to get there and help visitors prepare. There is time during a visit to reflect and discuss future activities. If you come from a twinning group, we will arrange for you to meet your twinning partner. We run support/feedback sessions in London when visitors return and encourage visitors to contribute to public feedback events.
