Tsunami donations still in Israel

Only half of Israeli donations to disaster victims have made it to Asia.

When disaster struck Southeast Asia in late December, Israelis donated more than NIS 4 million (USD 860,000) to the National Council for Volunteerism to aid relief efforts to millions of affected families. But according to Yedioth Ahronoth, more than six months later, at least NIS 2 million (USD 430,000) remains in Israeli bank accounts.

Sri Lanka, the country hardest hit by the tidal wave, has only received a few hundred thousand shekels. High tech company Amdocs, one of the principal donors to the relief effort, said Wednesday it did not know what happened to the money it contributed, but following an inquiry from Yedioth Ahronoth it would look into the matter.
