Founding director of IsraAid, Shachar Zahavi, told Israel Hayom that aid to this point has focused on providing basic materials, but the goal now was to help the vulnerable populations, first and foremost the children.
Since 2001, the organization has come to the aid of people in need in dangerous areas all over the world.
Some 1,000 Jewish and Israeli medical and humanitarian professionals from across the globe volunteer for the organization.
