Lutsky said that the 25 member Israel Flying Aid delegation consists of medical professionals who practice in several disciplines and Israel's first professional PR consultants who will ge on site to describe Israel Flying Aid, the IDF and the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs humanitarian role in Haiti.

"The situation in Haiti is going from bad to worse," said IFA senior international spokesperson Joel Leyden. "The UN has confirmed that the death toll has risen from a staggering 200,000 to 600,000 people. As the Israel Defense Forces have established the only advanced operating field hospital in Haiti, the IFA has come here with the explicit purpose to treat children for severe trauma and rape. Our team is now trying to adjust emotionally

to being exposed to the sight of hundreds of dead bodies and crying children who have lost their parents. It is a very sad situation but our professional and creative team is here to make these kids smile and provide them with immediate and future security.

Leyden said that the Israel Flying Aid convoy will set out for Haiti eary tomorrow morning with a very strong security detail to make assessments and consult with the IDF, Israel MFA and other governmental and NGO entities.

Israel Fying Aid, 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 and 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.

IFA is placing an urgent appeal to the global public to assist in finding and treating victims in Haiti by sending donations to Israel Discount Bank, branch 199, account # 57797, SWIFT ID: BLILIT.
