IsrAID expanding its activity in the Philippines.

IsrAID Philippines Country Manager Netanel Nisan discusses accomplishment of IsrAID in Ormoc.
Barely two years in operation in the Philippines, the sole NGO flagship carrier of Israel is now on the verge of expanding its activity, they come in Ormoc and Tacloban within 48 hours after Typhoon Yolanda hit and devastated the place, they immediately conduct medical assistance and relief operations, and since then they choose to stay.

IsraAID started in 2011 and they are in more than 35 countries in the world now, they are getting funds from different sectors that believe in their causes.  Among their programs for disaster stricken areas are mental health and psycho social support, family counselling program, food security and agriculture, livelihood programs, trainings with partners from academe community, identifying water resources, farmers cooperative and teaching Israeli irrigation water system, that they claim is one of their biggest contribution in agriculture.

On a conference at Barbara’s in Intramuros, Netanel Nisan, IsraAID Philippines Country Director  inform us that there is more that they can contribute in nation building, helping communities to stand up from any turmoil, and they are now in the situation of reaching other areas of the Philippines and extending assistance that they are best at.

“We have very successful program in Ormoc, and we want to duplicate it to other places, and to expand our activity as much as possible.” Nisan said.

Nisan himself admit that he likes staying in the country, he find working here and sharing their programs a joy of a lifetime, he also clarify that even they carry their country name Israel, they are not a Government support. As a NGO their funding usually are coming from donors all over the world, and even private companies here in the Philippines are giving them support.

“Immediately when I landed in this country, I fell in love with the country and the people, it’s a greatest experience, of course there are cultural gap that we need to overcome, but as I experience in our program in Ormoc, we get along very well.”
Nisan is join by Ms.Barbara Gordon-Delos Reyes in talks about IsrAID.
IsrAID didn’t disclose to us yet where and what Cities or provinces in the Philippines they are extending their programs, it is a work in progress as of now since talks and negotiations are ongoing.  Nisan also clarify some notions that NGO’s like IsrAID are just tolerating some people in stress areas by giving foods, they are more than that.

“We don’t feed anyone, we bring some technologies, but we don’t just bring equipments, we also bring knowledge that will stay here, and we also teach them how to rely on themselves, to be responsible for their future, we won’t be here forever, they need to save money, we are working with them.” Nisan said in closing.
