The Israel News Agency Reports The Israel Flying Aid Gives Food, Generators, Gas To Hurricane Sandy New York, New Jersey Victims:
Israel Flying Aid, the Israeli global humanitarian organization which was first to land in Haiti following the 2010 earthquake, has been distributing large supplies of gas to hospitals, food, batteries and generators to Hurricane Sandy victims.

"We have many years of disaster relief experience," said Israel Flying Aid North American Operations Manager Moti Kahana.

"Israel Flying Aid, in having Israelis on the ground here in New York and New Jersey, have made Israel the only foreign nation to provide humanitarian assistance to the US during this disaster. We are working in coordination with FEMA, local police, the American Red Cross and Jewish communities in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut."

Kahana said that most of the efforts had been donated by Israelis living in the US and this enabled gas to be distributed to hospitals in New York and New Jersey.

Israel Flying Aid is one of several Israeli organizations that operate under IsraAid

...Israel Flying Aid, which is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that assists global communities after earthquakes and other natural and man made disasters, have saved lives in Japan, Haiti, Iraq, Turkey, South Sudan and the US after Hurricane Katrina.
Some countries step up to the plate and help each other when disaster strikes.

Other countries -- as CNN reports -- live in a world all their own: 'Heroic' Iran, 'resistive' Syria behind Sandy, pro-Assad group claims.
