Hundreds have died in a massive 7.8 earthquake that has devastated regions of Ecuador. In Canoa, 98% of the buildings have been destroyed.
The Israeli disaster relief group IsraAID arrived in the country several days ago, and used private planes to reach Canoa. They set up a field hospital and began operating it on Saturday evening, focusing on immediate care, emergency medical treatment, child friendly spaces and psycho-social care.
Do Israelis give up precious time with their families over the holidays to help those in need? Yes they do.
