The IDF (Zahal) Humanitarian Aid team in Bogo City is made up of some of Israel’s top medical and disaster relief experts. We asked some of them what motivated them to join the IDF (Zahal)’s team in the typhoon-struck Philippines.

They are specialists, doctors, nurses and commanders. They speak more than seven languages. They are all different, but they came to the Philippines with one goal: to give people hope in their darkest hour. They are the IDF (Zahal). We salute them.
