THE Israeli Embassy in Canberra last week offered a $20,000 donation to not-for-profit organisation GIVIT to help communities affected by the recent severe storms and flooding in NSW and Queensland.
Interim ambassador Jonathan Peled said the embassy “is pleased to be able to lend a helping hand … with a donation towards ensuring a speedy recovery for those affected so they may soon return home”.
GIVIT regional manager Caroline Odgers said, “With the generous support of the Israeli Embassy, we will be able to meet the immediate needs of the communities.
“Donations like these mean the world to these impacted communities, as they have experienced unimaginable grief.”
