Quake survivor meets rescuers, starts therapy

Gondoz was brought to Israel by the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, which has provided ongoing humanitarian aid to earthquake victims in Turkey. Later this month, the JDC will bring another quake survivor to Israel for rehabilitation.

Ami Bergman, director of JDC projects in Turkey, said the organization is also involved in the construction of a school in Adapazari, which was struck by an earthquake in November, and in a project in coordination with the Tel Aviv municipality and Turkish authorities to build a model for providing support services in emergency situations.
