Bringing New Lives Into The World In Israel
there's a greAT need
100 new ambulances needed every year
MDA must replace approximately 100 ambulances every year because they can no longer be repaired. They have to be replaced due to the number of miles they travel, their 8-10 year lifespan, and daily wear and tear.
Each ambulance, which is like a hospital on wheels, will respond to over 10,000 urgent calls for help.
More than 15,000 Paramedics and EMTs (13,000 are volunteers) work day in and day out to save the lives of those in need. Many started their service through a youth program, which starts at age 15. Emergency responders are a special breed and like here in the U.S., MDA’s staff runs to the emergency while so many others turn and run away.
MDA is the only organization mandated by the Israeli government to serve in this role, but it’s not a government agency, so it relies on people like you for funding. Through your gift, you’re saving lives.
MICU AMBULANCE RECENTLY SAVED A LIFE IN ISRAEL
MDA paramedic Yair Schussheim arrived minutes later in a MICU ambulance. He found Yarin on the ground unconscious, with extensive blood on his face and his chest, so Yair and his team loaded Yarin onto the MICU. His injuries were so extreme that Yair feared he would not survive. His throat was filled with blood and teeth and he could not take a breath. Yair ventilated him and opened two IV lines. “Push the gas,” Yair told the driver. “Drive 140 and don’t stop!” He called ahead to alert the doctors and worked furiously to keep Yarin alive until they arrived at the trauma center. A week later, Yarin woke up in a bed at Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital. The doctors are optimistic his prospects for full recovery are good.
