IDF in Nepal: Small country, big heart, warm hands

Less than three weeks has passed since the highly succesful IDF field hospital team returned from saving lives and limbs in Nepal. The sights and sounds still remain with them.


One of the smallest countries in the world- Israel0 surpassed by far the largest in the world- China- in providing search-and-rescue and medical assitance to the victims of the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that devastated Nepal on April 25.

Not only was the Israel Defense Forces’ field hospital by far the largest, with 260 people, including 45 physicians and with nurses, x-ray technicians and more. It was also among the speediest to arrive, even though the team came from nearly 5,000 kilometers away, and it included the director-general of a major Israeli medical center and senior department chairman rather than only physicians.
