      MK Asher Praises Hareidi Charity Organizations in Storm


      MK Yaakov Asher, spoke before the Knesset on the contribution of Hareidi charity organizations dealing with the storm that hit Israel.

      He praised the authorities, the Israel Electric Company, police, MDA and the like, who worked in unbearable conditions, and emphasized those hundreds, possibly thousands of volunteers of charity organizations, who took a very active part in saving lives and helping others, "not as a duty but as a privilege."

       

      Asher added "During the cold days and nights these people came out and helped deliver babies, support the elderly, provide food and elementary commodities, many of them Hareidi and religious, from organizations like Zaka ,Ezer Mitzion, Yad Sarah, and Hatzalah."
