Israeli Medical Team Joins Relief Efforts in the Philippines
(October 12, 2009)
An Israeli medical team joined Operation Blessing’s relief efforts for victims of the two typhoons, Ketsana and Parma, that devastated the Philippines in September 2009. Six volunteer doctors, nurses and paramedics with the Israeli organization, IsraAID, arrived in the Philippines to assist Operation Blessing with their ongoing medical missions. In one day, the teams treated more than 300 women, children and elderly victims and over the following two weeks they planned to visit affected communities in Metro Manila and Northern Luzon.
