UNOCHA: Israel sends largest medical aid delegation to Nepal, also excels in search and rescue.
The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs published figures for humanitarian aid extended to Nepal following the powerful earthquake which struck on April 25, 2015. The figures are as of April 29/30, reflecting the immediate international response to the disaster – both foreign medical personnel and urban search and rescue (USAR) teams. Israel appears prominently in both categories.
The Israel delegation field hospital rank is by far highest in medical personnel, while three Israeli SAR delegations (IDF, Joint Disaster Response Team and IsraAID) figure significantly in the search and rescue category.
