In the wake of a nationwide blood bank shortage, resulting in numerous delayed life-saving medical procedures, an emergency blood drive will be held in Jerusalem Thursday evening between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m.
The blood drive will take place at the Leumit Medical Center in the shopping center on 81 Tiferet Ramot, and is being sponsored by the Leumit Health Fund and Lev Malka organization.
Donors aged 18 and older must present ID, while those under 17 must present a note stating parental approval. According to the sponsors, a single unit of blood can save up to four lives. Modesty will be strictly observed for religious Jews.
