IDF Wraps Up Rescue Mission in the Philippines

The IDF humanitarian delegation to the Philippines will leave from home on Wednesday and bring with them  two Philippine children who will be transferred to the Schneider Hospital in Tel Aviv for further medical care.

A military ceremony welcome the team at  Ben Gurion International Airport, during which Hanukkah candles will be lit.

During the past two weeks, the IDF medical teams have treated 2686 patients, including 848 children in field hospitals. Doctors, nurses, and medical staff performed 60 surgeries, most of them life-saving cases, and the IDF gynecological team was involved in approximately 36 births.

Home Front Command soldiers and officers worked on repairing schools damaged by Typhoon Haiyan and worked towards establishing infrastructure to allow water and food supply to the local population. Some of the IDF medical and rescue equipment will remain in the Philippines to be used by the German-Austrian delegation. The remaining equipment consists of eight tents, generators, various medicines and an X-ray machine.
