After five years of construction, the new £90m National Blood & Logistics Centre is nearing completion, which will be mid-2021. When complete, the facility will double Israel’s blood processing capacity and protect its blood against missile, chemical and biological attack. This is vital in protecting Israel’s blood supply for the future.
Magen David Adom UK is privileged to be able to offer its supporters the opportunity to be part of this incredible Project, by helping us with the finishing touches; sponsoring a mezuzah to be affixed to one of the door frames within the Centre.
The mezuzot have been commissioned and designed especially for this Project. The cost is £1,800 per mezuzah and donors will not only be recognised on a dedicated commemorative wall within the building, but they will also receive a limited-edition replica mezuzah for themselves.
Opportunities like these, to get involved in what is one of Israel’s landmark constructions, do not present themselves often.
For more information, please call Natalie Feldman on 020 8201 5900 or email email@example.com.
At Magen David Adom, we know that speed is critical. The faster we arrive at the scene of an emergency, the more lives we can save. As Israel’s only National Medical Emergency Service, running a fleet of 1,716 Ambulances, Mobile intensive Care Units and Medicycles, every second counts.
From the moment our call centres receive a 101 call, the clock is ticking, a delay in any part of the process will have an impact, sometimes critical. Time is the difference between life and death.
This is why we have trained and developed an army of 23,800 volunteers, working tirelessly together to save lives across the length and breadth of Israel. This is why we have over 7,500 First Responders, waiting for the call wherever and whenever it comes.
This is why we need your support.
Every donation we receive helps save more lives. From bandages in a kit bag to the new National Blood & Logistics Centre, soon to be completed in Ramla – every pound raised makes a real, tangible difference to those who really need it.
Please support Magen David Adom today. Every Second Counts
EMERGENCY MEDICINE APPEAL
The current humanitarian disaster in Lebanon has been described as the worst in the country’s history. The explosion in Beirut’s port has killed at least 200 people with thousands more injured. Three hospitals were destroyed and two more damaged. Medicine warehouses in the area have been decimated by the massive explosion, leaving clinics across the country short of essential resources.
Magen David Adom UK, through its ongoing collaboration with International Health Partners (IHP), is in a position to help in the response. Magen David Adom UK together with IHP is in the process of shipping significant amounts of medicines to Lebanon. The pharmaceuticals have all been donated as part of a ‘Gi s-in-Kind’ programme that has already seen tens of millions of pounds of lifesaving drugs distributed to countries in crisis. Magen David Adom UK needs to raise £70,000 of dedicated funds to facilitate the immediate shipment and delivery of pharmaceuticals to the people of Lebanon through IHP’s in-country partner. Seven containers of medicines and supplies belonging to this partner at the port were destroyed in the blast.

“Trekking in Israel this year for Magen David Adom was an experience I will never ever forget. From visiting the Blood Centre and the Dispatch Centre, to racing through Jerusalem at dawn with the sirens blaring, we were able to truly see the real work that this incredible charity does. The trekking was not easy. It was hot and tough but very worthwhile and the friendships made along the way will last a lifetime.” Nikki Cohen – October Trek 2018
“Was very sad waving goodbye to my newfound friends yesterday. I spent the afternoon reflecting on the past 6 special days and everything and everyone I had met. I would just like to add a huge thank you to each and everyone for your friendship, coffees, glasses of wine and arm to hold on the dark walks home. I love what we have achieved and look forward to seeing you all soon.” Sandra Brown, November 2018 ‘Walkie Talkie’ Trek

On 5th May, a group of 12 people set off from London on our annual Legacy mission to Israel.
Starting off in Jerusalem, the group visited Yad Vashem followed by the Israel Museum. Ido showed everyone around the MDA Bloomberg station and explained all about how the simulation room and call centre works. The group also visited the Milk Bank, ending their time in Jerusalem with a tour around the Old City.
The Legacy team travelled over to Tiberias and saw one of the helipads and Magen David Adom helicopters. Following this the team visited UK donated station; Sachnin which was donated by Lennie Lass.
The team was fortunate enough to be in Israel over Yom Hazikaron and Yom Ha’atzmaut and attended a Remembrance Day service for the fallen soldiers in Haifa together with the American friends of MDA. It was a very moving and special experience for everyone.
Being in Israel on Yom Ha’atzmaut is quite a privilege. The group witnessed the Israeli Air Force flying in procession from the beach of Tel Aviv. The trip concluded with a visit to the Palmach museum and listened to 12 different stories from Palmach soldiers talking about their life, battles and family.
Throughout this whole trip, every person gained an in-depth view of what how Magen David Adom means to Israel and how they are saving lives so regularly in more ways than one. Being involved with Magen David Adom legacies really is something very special and important. It makes a life changing impact on the people of Israel.
