The U.N. ambassador to Mexico—a country where Israel rushed aid workers and humanitarian assistance after a devastating earthquake in 2017—will be one of the featured speakers next week at the opening of an exhibition in the U.N. on Israel humanitarian aid around the world.
Israel's ambassador, Danny Danon, said the photo exhibition "showcases how far Israel will go to help others in need, regardless of who they are or where they live. We are often the first to arrive after disaster strikes when time is of the essence and aid is most crucial." Danon said. "Our continued humanitarian activities have saved the lives of thousands of people throughout the world. This exhibition is another opportunity to show the U.N. the true and beautiful face of the state of Israel and its moral values."
Danon said the event was "another example of how we are bringing Israel to the U.N." He said that "over the past few years, U.N. ambassadors that have visited Israel, learned about our technology and been exposed to our traditions have changed their disposition towards Israel in the halls of the U.N.
"Mexican Ambassador Juan Ramon de la Fuente will speak at the exhibition's opening on March 27, 2019, of Israel's large-scale operation in Mexico City following the major earthquake there a year and a half ago. Israel has, over the years, sent humanitarian aid and rescue missions around the world, from Greece and Turkey to Haiti, the Philippines, Nepal and, most recently, Brazil, following the collapse of a dam there in January 2019 (Jerusalem Post).
There are many ways in which Israel is a blessing to the nations of the world. Some additional examples are: Israel's unending contributions to the world of high tech, providing innovations from which we all benefit daily and Israel's endless scientific and medical innovations that are saving lives worldwide. Per capita, Israel produces more Nobel laureates than any other country. Israel generously provides its renowned agricultural advances to developing countries, creating sustenance, profit and independence to nations trying to become self-sufficient.
