(Communicated by IsraAid)

Following the recent terror attacks on the Taj Hotel, Trident-Oberoi, the Chabad Jewish Center and other places in India’s financial capital, in which close to 200 people were killed and many others injured, IsraAID  sent a team of post-trauma experts to train local professionals in giving support to victims of terrorist attacks. Israeli expertise on how to deal with mass-casualty disasters, especially terror attacks, is widely regarded..

In response to their request, an Israeli team will partner with the Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre’s Trauma Counseling Unit in Mumbai, which will use Israeli expertise on how to provide post-trauma treatment to victims of terror and their families. 

The IsraAID team will provide training in the hospital and at local schools in Mumbai, where they will train teachers  to impart resiliency to their students and to provide direct support to the victims and their families. In addition, the team will offer its assistance to foreigners and Jewish and Israeli personnel who were involved or in the vicinity of the attack.

 This program is a partnership of IsraAID, American Jewish Committee and the Jewish Federation of Greater Toronto, on behalf of Israel and the Jewish people.
