Christian Friends (CFMDA)

What is CFMDA?

Christian Friends of Magen David Adom was founded in 2006 by Christians who want to bless Israel, in a very practical way – all the people of Israel including Jews, Arabs, Bedouin, Druze and others. Their initial aim was to provide an ambulance to be deployed in Israel with the words “Christian Friends of Magen David Adom UK” written on the side. This has served as a witness to the people of Israel that many Christians are standing with them during what is a most difficult time in their history. Through their good work the CFMDA group wants to alter the perceptions of Christians and the Christian faith and demonstrate that everyone can work together.

To date, Christian Friends MDA UK have raised funds for seven ambulances (stationed in Nazareth, Tel Aviv, Carmiel, Rishon, Be’er Sheva, Afula and Jerusalem, the latter two being dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the Hadassah medical convoy massacre), a blood mobile (vehicle for collecting the much needed blood supplies) an Emergency Room at the MDA station in Kiryat Shomona and four medicycles.

CFMDA were also delighted to introduce the Joseph Storehouse Charity to MDA. The Joseph Storehouse have kindly donated a complete mobile intensive care unit to MDA from funds donated by UK Christians.

Our Current CFMDA Project –Blood Mobile for collecting much needed blood supplies. The blood mobile is a large truck which can take folding beds, equipment, a cab for four people and then a refrigerated section to store the blood en route to the Blood Bank at Tel Ha’Shomer.  Total cost £135,000.
