A fund established by Magen David Adom last year to cover costs for Holocaust survivors in need of ambulatory services has succeeded in providing survivors with significant help, the organization said on Monday as part of Holocaust Remembrance Day commemorations.

Standard health insurance covers some ambulance expenses, but not cases that are not considered emergencies.Israeli law prohibits MDA from providing free services, spurring the establishment of a fund to help this aging, unique population.
