Port au Prince, Haiti - (RPRN) 01/30/10 — Israel Flying Aid Receives Electric Generator From Pinson Foundation For Haiti Children

FOR SUMMARY: IFA is placing an urgent appeal to the global public to assist in finding, treating and feeding children in Haiti by sending donations to Israel Discount Bank, branch 199, account # 57797, SWIFT IDBLILIT.

  After three weeks of living without lights, a refrigerator, fans, radio and TV, the young, hungry children of an orphanage in Port au Prince, Haiti received a portable electric generator today.

Michael Pinson of Clearwater, Florida and Jay Madhu of Tampa, Florida drove for almost 2 hours through dirt and sometimes blockaded streets to reach the Haiti orphanage for which Israel Flying Aid is now supporting and rebuilding.

"As Michael and Jay entered the orphanage we were singing songs and teaching the 45 children aged 2 - 14 English," said Israel Flying Aid international spokesperson Joel Leyden.

"Our professional medical clowns from Israel were providing the children with treatment for trauma and rape. The children were laughing and smiling but once we realized that these two Americans who had braved falling building, gangs and disease, had brought us light, those smiles almost turned to tears of joy."

Israel Flying Aid has a medical mission of 14 volunteers working at the orphanage under extreme conditions. The children have all been diagnosed as malnourished. Twenty children of the orphanage had been illegally taken from the orphanage shortly before IFA arrived and are believed to have been sold to pedophiles. A facility for the remaining children to sleep in is presently being constructed and is expected to be ready by tomorrow.

The Pinson Foundation learned about Israel Flying Aid helping the children of Haiti while working at the Haiti Gospel Mission. Pinson has brought a team of 12 people, including 3 doctors and 7 nurses to Haiti.

"We watched the disaster unfold helplessly from our homes in the US, " said pinson. "Once we realized that the bureaucracy of the large US humanitarian aid organizations was preventing

life saving aid from getting to the people of Haiti we organized our own team and within 6 days were in Haiti."

Pinson, a US Army veteran who served in Iraq, was shocked to see the children living among rubble, garbage and cockroaches. Pinson said that he and many other volunteers who he came with took thousands of dollars out of their pockets to be in Haiti to assist in the relief effort.

Israel Flying Aid's roots are based upon Jewish tradition, religion and the pulsating heart of the Israel people," said Gal Lusky, CEO and founder of IFA.

"IFA follows the words of the prophet Isaiah to: 'Uphold the rights of the orphan; defend the cause of the widow', and in doing so we do not discriminate by race, nationality or religion".

"We urgently need funds to continue this operation and other humanitarian missions for which we carry out throughout the year around the world. To help those children who were injured and or abandoned. We have supplies for the children in Haiti for just a few more weeks, we need additional funds which will last them throughout the year and the hurricane season."

Yesterday in Tel Aviv, Israel over a 1,000 people bought tickets to attend an Israel Flying Aid fund raising event where 15 of Israel's leading actors and artists performed.

IFA, which was established in 2005, has an uncompromising obligation to the victims of disaster and not to their countries, governments, militias, or military that may prevent international assistance to victims. IFA chooses to deliver aid to communities that are hostile toward Israel, such as Iraq, Pakistan, Sudan, Indonesia and others.

Hundreds of IFA volunteers, who leave their families on short notice and risk their lives as they are dispatched to the most remote areas of the world in order to help those most in need, are brave individuals who represent the heart of Israel.

Israel Flying Aid reaches out on behalf of the Jewish people in the spirit of peace, love, and compassion.
