Israel Sends Second Shipment of Medical Supplies to Brazil Fire Victims

A second shipment of medical supplies was airlifted from Israel today to Brazil where they will be used to aid victims of last week’s forest fires.

Close to a ton of blood plasma, antitetanus serum and various antibiotics were sent aboard El Al and Alitalia jets without charge by either airline. The first consignment of emergency medical supplies was dispatched from Lydda Airport near here Saturday night.
