Gush Etzion Foundation

Giving the Gift of Life – Gush Etzion Ambulance Campaign

Terror attacks are on the rise in Gush Etzion and throughout the country. Molotov cocktails rock-throwing, along with ramming and shooting attacks, have become routine. Innocent commuters, pedestrians, and by-standers are injured and killed. The sense of security in the region has been undermined. In light of the difficult situation we appeal to you for help in purchasing 2 new ambulances.

Magen David Adom, the National Emergency Medical service, serves the residents in the Regional Council of Gush Etzion. It consists of nine ambulances shared by the 22 communities. The ambulances are operated and maintained by 120 staff volunteers, residents of Gush Etzion. All ambulances are in conjunction with Magen David Adom, which is a member of the International Red Cross Association.

Serving as emergency first responders, our main goal is to offer quick and immediate intervention to any person, regardless of their religion, race or sex and to stabilize them so that they can receive appropriate medical attention and treatment at the nearest hospital.
Volunteers are available 24/7, 365 days a year and are prepared to answer every call in or beyond the community (emergency medical treatment of road accident victims, etc.).

In order to upgrade our rapid response teams and administer emergency medical treatment, we are in need of 2 additional new ambulances. Speed and professional treatment are basic requirements in emergency services in saving lives.
At present, most of the ambulances are 11 years-old. They not only have mechanical problems, but legally they can no longer be on the road. This fact makes it difficult for volunteer emergency teams to carry out their jobs properly.

We call upon you to open your hearts and make a donation to this worthwhile cause. In doing so, you will take part in helping to save lives. In addition, you will enable us to continue carrying out our worthwhile and lifesaving mission.
