IDF rescue worker speaks with local residents at a disaster zone in the Philippines.

IDF rescue worker speaks with local residents at a disaster zone in the Philippines.

“I’m from the north of the country and the area that was hit was the south,” Tuazan said outside the church. “But we have a lot of friends who have not heard from their relatives since the disaster. The phone lines are down and we can’t get through by Skype either. People are really worried.”

One of Israel’s cellular providers offered free calls to the Philippines for three days after the disaster, but most people were unable to get through.

While Tuazan was speaking to The Media Line outside the church, a Jerusalem resident drove up to deliver a large plastic bag filled with clothes. The donor, Nadia Levene, said she posted information about the drive on Facebook.

“I saw the news on TV and my heart was just bleeding,” Levene told those assembled on the sidewalk. “I felt like I had to do something. This clothing is just the beginning. Just tell me what you need and what we can do to help.”

Gratefully accepting the clothes, Tuazan told Levene that the storm victims need summer clothes as it is currently hot and humid in the Philippines.
