Magen David Adom (MDA) called on Israelis to donate blood in order to alleviate what it described as a severe shortage in blood banks, Army Radio reported Tuesday.

MDA attributed the deficiency to its own difficulties in raising funds in August while many Israelis are on vacation. MDA cautioned that the shortage at blood blanks could lead to significant adverse affects, including delays in the medical and surgical treatment of patients throughout the country.

For information on how to donate blood, phone 03-5300400.
