Yad Sarah prepares for eventuality of snow

Yad Sarah is preparing to help people cope with the snow that is predicted for Jerusalem on Tuesday night and Wednesday. Patients, such as those who undergo kidney dialysis or cancer treatment, who need urgent transport to hospitals or clinics can get help by calling *6444 from any phone. Some 25 Nechonit vans and other vehicles for transporting the wheelchair bound will be supplied with chains to enable them to move through snowy and icy streets. If there is a significant amount of snow, medical equipment loan centers and emergency beeper centers will function on an emergency basis and if needed, will be boosted by additional volunteers.
