In recent days, earthquakes have devastated both Japan and Ecuador. The Jerusalem Post reports that Israel is sending aid to both quake-ravaged nations:

Dozens of Israeli aid workers are working to provide support on the ground in Japan and Ecuador after multiple deadly earthquakes recently rattled the two countries.

The Israeli humanitarian aid agency IsraAID announced on Sunday evening that it already has a delegation in southern Japan, where over 40 people were killed and thousands were injured in a pair of large scale tremors that have struck the Kumamoto province since Thursday.

Israeli relief workers have been distributing goods and opening child care centers in the affected Japanese communities, IsraAID said in a statement.

Meanwhile, an IsraAID team was expected to leave Sunday night to assist with emergency efforts in Ecuador after a 7.8 magnitude earthquake ravaged the Andean country, killing at least 272 people.

The Israeli team in Ecuador was prepared to offer medical treatment, psycho-social outreach and child resources.
