The UN ambassador to Mexico – a country where Israel rushed aide 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 UN 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.”

The exhibition will be on display March 24-31.

“Israel is the first to help countries in crisis,” 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 UN 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 UN.” He said that “over the past few years, UN ambassadors that have visited Israel, learned about our technology, and been exposed to our traditions have changed their disposition towards Israel in the GA and the halls of the UN.”

Mexican Ambassador Juan Ramón de la Fuente will speak at the exhibition’s opening on March 27 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, send 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.
