Wheelchair-bound mourners who have difficulty reaching graves at military cemeteries in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa and Beersheba on Remembrance Day  may ask to be taken there in Yad Sarah Nechonit vans.

Volunteer drivers will wait at the entrances on Wednesday morning to take the disabled to the graves. The volunteer organization is also holding a blood drive on Remembrance Day, as it expects many potential donors will be at the Mount Herzl military cemetery, which is only a short distance from Yad Sarah’s headquarters.
