Magen David Adom announced Sunday a joint project with the Interior Ministry to help bring warmth to the homes of Israel's elderly and infirm.

MDA opened a special telephone hotline on Sunday for elderly Israelis and the sick who need assistance and perhaps a warm meal due to the winter weather available at the number 1-700-500-430. It has been decided to keep the hotline open from Sunday until Monday operating between the hours of 8 a.m. and 10 p.m.

The goal of the operation is to reduce the number of Israelis who will suffer from frostbite or other cold-related ailments due to the recent plunge in temperatures and storm weather.
