Following the publication last Sunday (May 28) of the huge agreement signed with the Indian government that will bring 5,10 Indian workers here, half for the construction industry and half for the nursing industry, an Israeli traveler in India named Ofir Itah tells Walla Real Estate reporter Ofer Petersburg about an amusing and moving story that happened to her recently:
"I've been in India with friends for a month. Unfortunately, during the first two weeks of the trip I had ear infections, fever and bacteria in my throat, I couldn't get over it," Ofir writes in the WhatsApp message she sent Ofer.
"Luckily, in the last two weeks, God sent me an angel who helped me find a local guy in this chaos, who gave me antibiotics and didn't leave me for a second. I had no words to thank him, and I wished him two weeks ago, when I recovered, that karma would pay him back."
"Today, after a long time, I came to a macramé workshop and he enthusiastically tells me that they sent him an article saying that maybe he can come to Israel to work one day and visit because it's his dream. I read the article to him and said I would try to find out and help him."
"And indeed the karma... I know it's still early, but I decided to try, and if you have a way to help me help him, I won't have words to thank you, his dream is to get to work in the construction industry in Israel, he has more love for Israel than most Israelis I've met," Ofir concludes the message, hopefully.

Petersburg promised to try to help, and immediately updated Inbal Meshesh, head of the Foreign Workers Administration and head of the delegation that went to India, to promote the issue.
The Population and Immigration Authority, which is preparing for the recruitment stages, said upon signing the agreement with the Indian government that these are hardworking workers with experience, who speak fluent English, who will provide a response to the great shortage in recent years in the construction and nursing sectors in Israel. In construction, for example, we can be impressed by the knowledge and ability of the workers not far from here, in Dubai, most of which is built by Indians.
