Israel has vowed to fully rebuild a village in Nepal that was destroyed by last Saturday’s earthquake.

“We decided to adopt a village in Nepal, to assist with its reconstruction and to do our utmost to help,” Foreign Minister Liberman announced Thursday.

The work on the yet undetermined village will include clearing away the debris, building infrastructure and houses, and making sure residents have drinking water.

Israel is currently operating a field hospital in Kathmandu, and will likely begin the new project after that closes, and after they get assistance from Nepal as to which village to help, he said.
