World leaders speak about zaka
I would like to thank you all for the important work that you are doing and to encourage you to continue. You work to rescue people buried in the ruins, people who needed an outstretched arm, and that hand was yours.
ZAKA Chairman Meshi-Zahav told me that ‘We save anyone who needs to be saved, and honor all people equally’. I can think of few more profound ways to define the mission not only of humanitarians, but of anyone who believes in the principles of equality, human rights, and dignity, that the UN was created to uphold.
The Government of Nepal is grateful to your team for traveling to Nepal and your efforts to help us in our time of need.
We thank ZAKA for their unique and swift assistance to our civilians who were injured in the
typhoon disaster. Without a doubt, your activity saved many lives.
I congratulate the ZAKA delegation members on their work after the volcano eruption.
Guatemala greatly appreciates this blessed initiative.
ZAKA’s commitment to treating all the victims, regardless of religion, race or ethnicity, sends a powerful message. The United Nations is pleased to have ZAKA as a partner in our humanitarian operations and in our wider efforts to reduce disaster risk and improve disaster preparedness.
Your work in the devastated areas after the tsunami and earthquake and your specialist knowledge and assistance was much appreciated by the emergency services with whom you worked in the field. We in the Japanese Embassy have great esteem for the humanitarian endeavors of the ZAKA organization.
