Two Israeli women died in a collision involving a truck and a tourist minibus on Friday in Georgia’s hilly Kada region.
The collision injured seventeen additional people, mostly Israelis, who were sent to three local hospitals, where some underwent urgent surgery.
A group of volunteers, including Rav Ze’evi Mendelzon, the Chabad sh’liach in the nearby city of Batumi, traveled to the hospitals to help the injured patients.
Four injured Israelis, including a 38-year-old lady with multiple system damage, were transferred to Israel for additional medical care.
According to Ynet, two Israeli ladies who were critically hurt are still in Georgian hospitals.
Along with the Israeli ambassador to Georgia, Hadas Meitzad, and the consul general in Tbilisi, Hadas Cohen, the Department of Israelis Abroad of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is offering assistance to the victims.
For Israeli tourists, Georgia is a trendy travel destination.
