Israeli Flying Aid (IFA) is a volunteer non-profit organization founded by Gal Lousky. IFA specializes in transferring emergency, lifesaving aid to populations in disaster areas, and in particular nations in which the IFA presence is especially significant:
Nations that have no diplomatic relations with Israel, and are hostile to Israel.
Nations in which the government is hostile to its own citizens and refuses to allow entrance of foreign lifesaving aid after natural disasters but in effect uses the disaster as a weapon of mass annihilation in order to overturn opposition.
"Complex regions" where UN Red Cross teams and NGOs are not allowed entry (e.g., Indian Kashmir following the earthquake, Russian-occupied Georgia, etc.)
IFA has aided disaster victims in India, Sri Lanka, the Georgian Republic and elsewhere, including extending aid in the United States during Hurricane Katrina.
Israeli Flying Aid is on the spot in Haiti bringing vitally needed help. They need your donations to continue.
