An Israeli organization plans to send aid to refugees fleeing the civil war in the Ivory Coast, IsraAID said on Monday.

"We are currently focusing on the needs so to distribute much needed relief items and provide medical care to the tens of thousands before the rainy season reaches the region and would make relief efforts more complicated," Shachar Zahavi, IsraAID's director said.

An estimated 150,000 refugees crossed from the Ivory Coast into Liberia since January.
