Donations to United Hatzala in Israel

Shalom from Jerusalem!
I would like to wish you and yours a wonderful Passover. As we approach this season of our freedom our thoughts turn to those less fortunate than ourselves; the Holocaust Survivors, the injured in need of immediate life-saving medical attention, and the elderly who cannot afford ambulance services. The volunteers of the United Hatzalah will do everything to meet any medical emergencies that might occur during the Holiday. Our people are on call 24/7 throughout the entire State of Israel. In peace as well as in war, the injured in body and spirit are never alone as long as a Hatzalah doctor, nurse, medic or paramedic is still standing.
United Hatzalah of Israel is the largest independent, non-profit, fully volunteer Emergency Medical Services organization that provides the fastest and free emergency medical first response throughout Israel. United Hatzalah service is available to all people without regard to race, religion or national origin.

United Hatzalah has more than 2000 volunteers who come from a complete spectrum of Israeli society, religious and secular, male and female, Jewish and non-Jewish. Not only have the volunteers been able to redefine the government’s status quo of emergency first response, Arabs and Jews are also working together, side-by-side, and have been able to break down religious barriers through United Hatzalah’s sole mission and unifying motivation: to save as many lives as possible.
United Hatzalah volunteers, all of whom are trained and certified as EMTs, paramedics or doctors, respond to any medical emergency in their vicinity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. In times of “peace” the United Hatzalah volunteers establish a life-saving bridge of medical care to nearly 200,000 people each year within 2 to 3 minutes from a distress call. Volunteers treat an average of 700 people each day and individually respond to an average of 360 calls per year in Israel; which comes to about 200,000 calls a year. During times of war this number is more than doubled.
United Hatzalah trains and equips emergency first response volunteers who live and work in communities, cities and kibbutzim throughout the entire State of Israel in order to provide a more rapid and effective medical intervention. A proprietary GPS based deployment technology identifies the most qualified and closest volunteer to an emergency, maximizing efficient allocation of resources and minimizing response times. Fully equipped ambucycles travel nimbly through traffic, narrow alleys and obstructed roadways and, if need be, rocket barrages to bring all the necessary medical equipment an ambulance carries to the scene of an emergency.

United Hatzalah considers lifesaving to be of utmost value. While maintaining transparency, honesty and loyalty, United Hatzalah will continue to save lives in Israel, on a completely voluntary basis, in order to provide critical medical treatment to every citizen in need. It is just as critical to our success that we partner with you. Please help us to reach out, together with you, to those who are in immediate medical need by remembering us this Passover.
