No matter what the disaster is, Israel is always the first to send out help.
In 1998 when there was severe flooding in Central America, Israel dispatched a team of Spanish-speaking doctors and nurses to Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Guatemala to assist with the aftermath of Hurricane Mitch.
In 2010, there was an earthquake that nearly destroyed Haiti's capital. Israel responded by sending multiple medical & rescue teams to assist in operations. The IDF also established the first field hospital in Port-au-Prince.
In 2009 and 2013, the Philippines were struck by typhoons that claimed thousands of lives. Israel dispatched humanitarian aid, search & rescue squads and medical teams to aid in both relief operations.
Israel has also been a first responder to other natural disasters and terrorist attacks in Kenya, Japan, and more.
