Nepal Rescue Efforts
Israel continues to lead the way. 260 Israeli medics and rescue personnel arrived in earthquake-ravaged Nepal and set up a field hospital with 60 beds. In their first week, they delivered four babies, performed dozens of life-saving surgeries, treated hundreds of injured survivors, and tried to avoid the spread of contamination and deadly illnesses. While there, the body of hiker Or Asraf, Israel’s only casualty from the earthquake, was returned to Israel for burial. Contributions can be made by clicking here.
