The American Jewish Committee - which currently has its solidarity mission visiting Israel since mid-July - said Wednesday that it was donating over NIS 2 million for three hospitals in the North. The AJC announced that the money would go to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa, Ziv Hospital in Safed and Western Galilee Government Hospital in Nahariya, all of which bore a heavy burden during the Hizbullah rocket attacks. The delegation, headed by its executive director, David Harris, met with Rambam director-general Prof. Rafael Beyar who offered details on how the hospital had to cope with both the attacks and the dozens of wounded patients. The AJC has raised over NIS 10 million for rehabilitating the North, and some of the money will go directly to the hospitals for equipment and other needs.
