Since the early hours of Shabbat morning, hundreds of paramedics, doctors, and EMTs from United Hatzalah have been providing lifesaving medical care on various battlefields in the southern region and have unfortunately had to pronounce many of the injured dead.
Approximately 100 rescue vehicles, ambulances, and mobile intensive care units, as well as armored vests, helmets, and a significant amount of medical equipment and personnel, were dispatched from the north and center to different areas in the south.
Israel has declared a state of war. In this state of emergency – unlike anything Israel has experienced since the Yom Kippur War – Israel needs your urgent support. United Hatzalah is launching an emergency appeal to raise funds for desperately needed supplies to provide our volunteers with the equipment they need to save lives and the protective equipment to keep themselves safe.
The goal of the campaign is to raise $10 million to equip an additional 1,000 United Hatzalah volunteers with protective vests and helmets, oxygen tanks, defibrillators, trauma bandages, and tourniquets. These supplies can be ordered and delivered over the course of the next week to ensure that UH volunteers have everything they need to respond to the ongoing attacks.
Our medics are on the front line and in need of support and reinforcements as they respond to lifesaving calls. The time is now. Your support is critical to ensure the safety of our volunteers and the people of Israel.
