Israeli Group Helping With Hurricane Harvey Clean-up

ZAKA, a leading Israeli humanitarian organization, is on the ground in Houston, helping residents cope with Harvey’s damage.  “We know how to deal with big disasters, and we are here to help,” said one of ZAKA’s team leaders.   The organization, which received a $7,500 Foundation grant in 2004 for its mobile rescue team, has provided relief in some of the worst disaster zones, including Haiti’s 2010 earthquake, Japan’s 2011 earthquake and tsunami, and mass terror attacks including Mumbai in 2008 and Paris in 2015.
A ZAKA volunteer working on the Houston cleanup effort told a Breaking Israel News reporter, "When the U.S. needs help, we are coming. We are here." The pastor of Houston's Gulf Meadows Church said "to have religious people from Israel come with shoulder to shoulder help, we are honored beyond belief."
