SAVING LIVES EVERY DAY IN ISRAEL BY PROVIDING MOBILE ICU AND KIOSKS DEFIBRILLATORS
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.
