He has worked with patients in India, with AIDS-stricken orphans in Ethiopia, with tsunami survivors of South East Asia and with survivors of the earthquake in Haiti.

Dudi holds an undergraduate degree in nursing and theatre arts from University of Haifa.
He writes, directs, produces, acts and works as artistic director on various plays and projects.
