Israel responds to disaster

"Thou didst call in trouble, and I rescued thee;"
Psalm 81:7


Israel is sending aid teams to devastated Myanmar (formerly Burma) , where the death toll from a cyclone that battered the Southeast Asian nation over the weekend is said to be between 23,000-50,000.

The Foreign Ministry sent teams from the IDF's highly trained search-and-rescue team as well as a 10-member team of top Israeli doctors and nurses. Israel also dispatched badly needed supplies, including plastic sheeting, food, household appliances and water filters.
