Israel: IsraAID response team heading to Mozambique to provide aid in the wake of cyclone

 

Few countries provide more humanitarian aid to the continent of Africa than Israel. Most of the governments in this impoverished continent greatly appreciate Israel’s invaluable aid in fields such as water, agriculture, security, and disaster relief. This is why Israel is making enormous diplomatic progress with the various African countries.

You would think that the black leadership in the United States would be showering praise on the Jewish state for its extensive humanitarian efforts in black Africa. Instead, the Congressional Black Caucus and organizations such as Black Lives Matter have chosen to be relentless enemies of Israel, at the behest of the Jew-hating Palestinians and the BDS movement. It’s so disgusting.

IsraAID is sending a response team to Mozambique in the wake of a Cyclone Idai, which tore across the country on March 14, days after incessant rains.

The Israeli humanitarian group will provide relief supplies and medical care, restore access to potable water and offer psychological support to those affected.

The United Nations reported that Cyclone Idai, which caused devastation in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe, might be the southern hemisphere’s worst such disaster in history. More than 2.6 million people could be affected.

At least 200 people are confirmed dead and predictions are that this total will reach 1,000. In 2018, IsraAID emergency response teams reached 26,300 people worldwide.

Israeli humanitarian NGO IsraAID is dispatching an emergency response team to Mozambique, after it was hit by the devastating Cyclone Idai, thought to be the worst ever disaster to strike the southern hemisphere, according to the United Nations.

The cyclone, which swept through Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe in southeastern Africa, destroyed everything in its path, leaving homes, crops and infrastructure in ruins, and fears that over 1,000 people will have died in the tragedy.

More than 2.6 million people across the three countries are thought to be affected by the powerful storm.  Mozambique’s port city of Beira, the country’s fourth largest, took a direct hit from the cyclone leaving it 90 percent destroyed and almost completely cut off by storm surges of 18 feet.
