Although the people of Israel have always been surrounded by enemies, these are particularly dark days.
- Coronavirus is sweeping across Israel, impacting the lives of every man, woman, and child, causing perhaps the greatest medical emergency in our lifetime.
- Hezbollah, a terrorist organization founded to destroy Israel, now has an arsenal of over 150,000 missiles positioned along Israel's northern border.
- Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza continue to stockpile weapons and unpredictably launch barrages of missiles into southern Israel.
- Iran continues to smuggle missiles into Syrian, Lebanon, Yemen, and Iraq — and now may be only months away from assembling its first nuclear warhead.
We look for light, but all is darkness;
for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows.
As Israel's Red Cross organization, MAGEN DAVID ADOM is always on duty. The desperate calls for emergency medical help come in around the clock.
Into this darkness, highly trained men and women bring light and hope. They respond with compassion and skill, bringing comfort and healing, and saving lives.
This means that every day, to meet these urgent needs, MAGEN DAVID ADOM's 25,000 paramedics, EMTs, and first responders must receive constant training. They need serviceable gear and emergency vehicles. They must continually replenish massive quantities of medical supplies, trauma equipment, and emergency blood stores.
It takes every possible dollar to continue to meet the urgent needs of Israel's 9 million citizens. Every day brings another 15,700+ calls for help. In Israel, every day also brings the threat of terrorism or war. Just one major attack from Israel's enemies could exhaust the nation's emergency resources.
