Rona Ramon, who died yesterday at the age of 54, was a long-standing friend and supporter of our colleagues at World ORT Kadima Mada קדימה מדע in Israel.

In 2008, five years after her husband Ilan Ramon – Israel’s first astronaut – was killed aboard his NASA space shuttle, Rona helped Kadima Mada contact NASA and arrange for an astronaut to participate in Kiryat Yam’s first ever Space Day.

Rona attended and spoke at the event (pictured), which was a huge success and was repeated annually for many years.

The Planetarium at Kadima Mada’s Mada Park in the town is named after Ilan Ramon thanks to the contribution of NASA.

She had been due to take part in a project Kadima Mada was running at a college in 2009, but a few days before it began she received the terrible news that her son Assaf, an Israeli Air Force pilot, had been killed in a training accident.

Rona used her grief to spur her on to other social projects, but now her own untimely death after pancreatic cancer has left us, and her many friends around the world, grieving.

World ORT Kadima Mada’s Sherrie Gazit met Rona a decade ago. Here are her words: "Rona Ramon has always been a legend in World ORT’s Israel office.

“Not only because of who she was, but because she was instrumental in bringing NASA astronauts to our initial annual Space Day in Kiryat Yam - a tradition that continued for many years afterwards.

“On a more personal note, I am deeply saddened to hear of her loss. I remember a meeting some years later that she had initiated to discuss a new collaborative venture.

"She was not only persuasive and inspiring but, more than that, she was deeply caring. You could see it in her eyes."

Our thoughts are with Rona's family at this sad time. BDE.

World ORT shared Facebook London's post.

A great initiative from our friends at ORT UK and Facebook London! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻Earlier this year, Facebook London entered a partnership with UK charity ORT UK (part of World ORT) to create a mentorship programme as part of our participation in the Year of Engineering, a campaign focused on encouraging young people into science, technology, engineering and maths careers.

In addition, we held an open day in our London engineering offices to allow 100 pupils from secondary schools in the area to interact with our employees in partnership with the Primary Engineer. Students ranging from years nine to 11 were able to work alongside Facebook engineers and product teams in workshops where they were encouraged to brainstorm ideas about how to use technology to solve real-world problems.

As well as developing ideas, pupils had the chance to learn about the career paths of the Facebook employees they met, and the products they work on within Facebook, such as virtual reality (VR), WhatsApp, Instagram camera filters, or Workplace, and how these could address real-world issues.
