Your donations help save lives in Israel.
The mission of Swiss Friends of Magen David Adom is to donate medical supplies and ambulances directly to the people of Israel through Magen David Adom (MDA)*, Israel's sole national emergency, medical, ambulance, and blood services society.
* Magen David Adom Israel, a full participative member of the International Red Cross Red Crescent Society, offers its life-saving and humanitarian services to anyone in the State of Israel-resident or visitor - regardless of race, color, religion, creed or orientation - and abroad when called upon during crises and disasters.
Magen David Adom (MDA) Israel was founded in 1930 and today has over 100 stations across the country. Israel’s only national first aid organization, operating according to the principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, MDA provides emergency, medical, ambulance and blood services for the benefit of all Israelis, regardless of nationality or religion. It conducts training in first aid and pre-hospital emergency medicine, and maintains storage services of 95% of all blood and blood by-products. The blood services center is a state-of-the-art facility specializing in research into genetic diseases and cord-blood treatment.
MDA relies heavily upon a network of volunteers in all capacities, from medical to para-professional to clerical.
