The Magen David Adom said Tuesday it was working with the Embassy of the Philippines and the Foreign Ministry to fly home the body of Filipino worker Luisa de la Cruz, who died of leukemia on Sunday. The MDA stated that it was funding the flight, since De la Cruz's family lacked the necessary means to fly her body back to the Philippines. MDA Director-General Eli Bin said that "as well as saving lives, MDA excels in widespread humanitarian work in Israel and the world, and it has decided to pay for the flight of the body."
