Israel Flying Aid Humanitarian Volunteers Confront Children Suffering In Haiti
Date:1/29/2010

IFA, which was established in 2005, has an uncompromising obligation to the victims of disaster and not to their countries, governments, militias, or military that may prevent international assistance to victims. IFA chooses to deliver aid to communities that are hostile toward Israel, such as Iraq, Pakistan, Sudan, Indonesia and others. IFA is placing an urgent appeal to the global public to assist in finding and treating children in Haiti by sending donations to Israel Discount Bank, branch 199, account # 57797, SWIFT IDBLILIT.

Port-au-Prince, Haiti (PRWEB) January 29, 2010 -- The following news release was filed by the Israel News Agency working on site in Haiti.

Imagine children who have just lost their arms or legs. Imagine children who wash themselves in sewage water. Imagine children who are starving to the extent that their stomachs are bloated. Imagine children who sleep on the bare, cold ground surrounded by fallen ruble and cockroaches.


Imagine children who fear to sleep inside their own homes.

These are the babies and young children of Haiti.

Many walking around in a daze, suffering from PTS - post traumatic stress after being slammed to the ground by a 7.1 magnitude earthquake.

So very eager for food, water and a warm, loving hug.

Enter Israel Flying Aid.

With a small and professional humanitarian team of medical professionals and led by veteran disaster relief expert Gal Lusky, they enter into a small orphanage in Port au Prince. They are greeted by 46 children and 20 Nuns. Wasting no time they distribute food, water and mattresses, while doctors and nurses from both the Israel Defense Forces and Israel Flying Aid begin to examine the children.

The medical team is shocked to find them in an extreme state of hunger.

To make matters even worse, they discover that about 20 other little girls, against the efforts of the Nuns, had been taken from the orphanage to be sold to pedophiles by human traiffkers.

The Israel Flying Aid team came into Haiti with professional medical clowns to treat the children for trauma and rape. These clowns waste no time in donning their red plastic noses and wide, white smiles in a matter of minutes the children are laughing.

Lusky now heads to one of the hundreds of tent cities now dotting Haiti. There she finds and puts to work about a dozen men to reinforce the walls of the orphanage. As Lusky returns she shows the men where to start and then picks up one of the small children. The child she softly cradles in her arms will be taken back to Israel for an operation.

There is no electricity. As night falls, Israel Flying Aid volunteers lay on white mattress singing to the children as kerosene lamps add a touch of light.

As the morning sun begins to rise, the sound of roosters fill the warm and humid air.
The Israel Flying Aid volunteers search for showers, but quickly realize that buckets of fresh water will suffice. It is the same water that they have brought to this starving and isolated orphanage.

The Nuns begin to pray. Prayers which turn into singing that transcend into a breakfast of macaroni noodles and coffee. All of which was brought by these Israeli volunteers who left the warmth and safety of their homes 7,000 miles away.

The tears and crying of the children have been replaced by smiles and laughter.
This is Israel Flying Aid.

"Israel Flying Aid's roots are based upon Jewish tradition, religion and the pulsating heart of the Israel people," said Gal Lusky, CEO and founder of IFA.

"IFA follows the words of the prophet Isaiah to: 'Uphold the rights of the orphan; defend the cause of the widow', and in doing so we do not discriminate by race, nationality or religion".

"We urgently need funds to continue this operation and other humanitarian missions for which we carry out throughout the year around the world. To help those children who were injured and or abandoned. We have supplies for the children in Haiti for just a few more weeks, we need additional funds which will last them throughout the year and the hurricane season."

Today, in Tel Aviv, Israel over a 1,000 people have bought tickets to take part in an Israel Flying Aid fund raising event with 15 of Israel's leading actors and artists performing.

IFA, which was established in 2005, has an uncompromising obligation to the victims of disaster and not to their countries, governments, militias, or military that may prevent international assistance to victims. IFA chooses to deliver aid to communities that are hostile toward Israel, such as Iraq, Pakistan, Sudan, Indonesia and others.

Hundreds of IFA volunteers, who leave their families on short notice and risk their lives as they are dispatched to the most remote areas of the world in order to help those most in need, are brave individuals who represent the heart of Israel.

Israel Flying Aid reaches out on behalf of the Jewish people in the spirit of peace, love, and compassion.

IFA is placing an urgent appeal to the global public to assist in finding and treating children in Haiti by sending donations to Israel Discount Bank, branch 199, account # 57797, SWIFT IDBLILIT.
