For the first time in Israel, Magen David Adom will open a branch in an Arab community. With a donation of some $750,000, collected by the MDA Friends Society in Britain from the Jewish community there, the city of Sakhnin will enjoy a brand new building that will station MDA crews. Over the past few months MDA has prepared the groundwork for the opening by training medics, drafting volunteers, collecting blood supplies and teaching young mothers first aid. CEO of MDA, Eli Ben Tzayen, said, "The foundation of this building in Sakhnin represents MDA's core values, Israel's national first aid and rescue organization, of equality and availability of MDA anywhere at anytime." The new, modern structure will contain training classrooms, a volunteers club, treatment rooms, and blood-giving stations.
