Magen David Adom (MDA) is Israel’s official ambulance service, blood services, and disaster rescue agency. Each of Israel’s 8 million residents relies on the paramedics of MDA to respond to all emergencies. In Israel, that could be anything from large-scale disasters to the car accidents, sudden illnesses, and falls that happen every day. It can also mean a suicide bomber or a rocket attack near the country’s borders. Virtually everyone in Israel knows someone whose life has been saved by Magen David Adom.
MDA has to be ready for any event. But MDA isn’t funded by the Israeli government, so it’s dependent on the support of generous people like you, who ensure that dispatch centers are equipped with the latest communications technology, that paramedics have the most up-to-date training, that the country has enough ambulances, and that those ambulances are stocked with lifesaving equipment. So when you ride in support of Magen David Adom, you get the satisfaction of knowing that the money you raise has impact — that you’re literally helping save lives.
