The Israeli humanitarian agency IsraAid has earned the gratitude of residents of Yorkshire for their help in the flood-stricken area, Arutz Sheva reported.
The Lord Mayor of Leeds, Judith Chapman, lauded the “incredible initiative” of the Israeli volunteers.
“I find it heartwarming to see that a delegation from Israel is prepared to drop everything in order to reach out to those in Yorkshire who have been affected by this recent terrible crisis and offer professional aid and support and their technical expertise,” Chapman said.
“When we hear about the dreadfully disturbing events taking place worldwide, then this humanitarian act puts everything into perspective and restores one’s faith in mankind.”
The BBC also took note, airing a short laudatory piece on the IsraAid delegation.
