An Israel You’ve Never Seen Before

Because that is what we do...
Israeli doctors hold baby Israel in the Philippines shortly after his birth.

Israeli doctors hold baby Israel in the Philippines shortly after his birth.

Israel was born… in the Philippines.

At an Israeli field hospital.

Set up by doctors, nurses and rescue teams sent by the State of Israel.

Because that is what we do…

Because that is what is right…

Because that is what everyone should do.

His parents came to the hospital and trusted that the doctors would help them…and they did – as they have helped almost 1,000 others in the few short days they were there.

And when the baby was born, in gratitude, his parents named him Israel. May Israel grow in strength and soul and may he always know that people came from far, from a land he may never know, to help him because that is what the people of Israel do.
