ZAKA Rescue

logo 1

In the forefront of international search and rescue and recognized in 2005 by the United Nations as an international humanitarian organisation, the ZAKA canine unit recruits teenagers from socially disadvantaged and “at risk” environments and trains them with dogs to seek out and rescue people – such as in earthquakes. In doing so it takes young people who otherwise would have been a drain on society and turns them into skilled and dedicated life savers. It achieves so much of the purpose for which HabAid exists and we are proud to have recently become supporters of this unit.
