Magen David Adom, meaning, the Red Shield of David,
While too many Arabs, living inside Israel and her surroundings, want to torpedo the life of the Jewish State and its citizens, Magen David Adom, operated largely by consciences, well-trained volunteers, shields life in Israel each second of the day and night.
Israel is surrounded by enemies. To the north, Hezbollah, the proxy of Iran, has thousands of rockets accurately pointing at crucial targets inside Israel. To the south, Hamas is freely firing rockets and mortars into Israel, targeting the civilian population, and ISIS is roving mad in the Sinai Peninsula.
Not to forget many vicious Arabs living in Israel who target Jews for being Jews, attacking them with knives, fire bombs and rocks. Now more than ever there is the need to protect the blood supply of Israel and the planed underground blood bank is an existential, must be completed, project.
Israel will continue to see terror; rockets and missiles will be fired at her by her enemies and by some Moslems in her midst, who do not want Jews living in their ancient Promised Land and will continue waging their religious terrorism war against the Jews. Since blood is the sustenance of life, sustaining the nation’s supply and storing it is now Magen David Adom’s first priority.
And with the generosity and support of people who clearly understand Israel’s predicament, Magen David Adom continues giving outstanding services to all Israel’s citizens, whenever they receive the call, wherever they are needed, in Israel and even abroad.
