Serving God in Practical Ways

Our Campaings

The ECMO Ambulance

Moments when every minute is critical

Magen David Adom joins other countries, such as the Netherlands, Great Britain and the United States in using a special vehicle equipped with the ECMO machinery, for patients who go into cardiac arrest.

This uniquely characterized vehicle has a working environment adapted to the needs of an operating room, on wheels. This allows the team to perform even more complex procedures on the way to the hospital and in the field.

This ambulance includes full MICU equipment, a unique electric bed for seriously ill patients, a place for accompanying the patient, a driver, five crew members, and even a special medicine refrigerator.

An important procedure that has been made possible to do in this particular ambulance is the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO Procedure). It pumps and oxygenates a patient’s blood outside the body, allowing the heart and lungs to rest while the patient is being transported.

In the past, patients who went into cardiac arrest and underwent unsuccessful CPR in the field – were rushed to the hospital, in difficult conditions, rushed for time, and had limited resources for extreme cases.

In order to solve this problem, MDA paramedics, nurses and doctors from the Shamir Medical Center have undergone extensive training for handling the ECMO procedure. This is practiced already in the field, thereby significantly shortening time of connection to the device and in end saving lives. for more information visit:


We are in need of First Responder Motorcycles and Medical Supplies

From anti-government protests to violent confrontations with Palestinians during Ramadan, Israel is mired in internal conflict and declining morale. This has contributed to the threat of continued escalation as Israel’s enemies are trying to lure her into a multi-front conflict.

During this Passover, rather than experiencing a time of joyous festivity, many in the nation are in mourning and burying their loved ones. This week alone brought indiscriminate car rammings, shootings, and rockets, claiming the lives of innocent civilians.
The responsibility and workload of MDA rapid response teams and blood services have been enormous.
Please support the work of Israel’s only National Medical Rescue Organization by donating towards a First Responder’s much-needed motorcycle.

Protect Our Nation’s Blood Supply

The Marcus National Blood Center Fundraiser

Every 17 seconds, someone in Israel needs blood. Human blood has no substitute it is a liquid that gives life. Israel is now launching full operations of its new state-of-the-art blood bank center in Ramla but needs your help. This will process and safely store nearly all of Israel’s blood donations for both civilians and members of the Israel Defense Forces. It’s not just Jewish blood, it’s Muslim blood and Christian blood.

The new facility doubles Israel’s blood capacity and it will be protected from missiles, biological and chemical warfare, and earthquakes. Your donation will go to establishing the Cyber-com room that will protect Israel’s blood supply.
