On the 6th of June 2019 the University of Gondar hosted the deputy ambassador of the State of Israel. The day brought together and touched on the long standing relationship of Israel with the city of Gondar and the University of Gondar in particular.
Just last year the Ambassador of Israel His Excellency Mr. Rafael Morav visited UoG and donated much needed equipment to the University hospital. And today the deputy ambassador was able to see these resources in action.
On the topic of health the equipment that was donated by Israel to the referal hospital has been of great use to the community and this point was reiterated during the day. The day brought together the President of the University of Gondar, Dr. Asrat Atsedeweyn, Gondar city mayor Dr. Muluken Adane, CMHS Vice President Dr. Sisay Yifru and others.
Israel has long standing and historical ties with the city of Gondar. And with that in mind Israel is thinking about building a museum that would showcase this relationship and link.
The deputy ambassador of Israel showed his commitment to creating a cultural museum in Gondar and today on the 6th of June 2019 the deputy ambassador Mr. Danley attested to this great proposal.
In 2016 a group of faculty from the University of Gondar formed a committee to organize and write out a proposal to the State of Israel about the cultural significance of an Israeli museum in Gondar. The committee finished its work and the aforementioned proposal was sent by the then Prime Minister who was visiting the country. Now almost 3 years later UoG is excited to hear that its commitment and concepts are coming to life.
