As the first Bahraini visitor to Magen David Adom in Israel, it was an unforgettable experience. I saw Jews and Arabs working side by side in ambulances, practice and simulation rooms and the emergency centre. I was amazed to see that the response times were 3-5 minutes, and I know it’s all thanks to MDA volunteers all over Israel – and all for the purpose of saving lives.” Yosef Muhammad
Last month, we had the honour of welcoming a delegation of young leaders and influencers from the UAE, Bahrain, Morocco and Egypt, as well as their Israeli counterparts, to the MDA station in Jerusalem.
The visit focused on MDA’s lifesaving work and its technological expertise – showcasing MDA’s training, technology and innovation for the benefit of all people irrespective of race, religion, gender or ethnicity.
The visit to MDA Jerusalem will feature in a film entitled Finding Abraham. The film will be premiered at the UN on the anniversary of the signing of the Abraham Accords in September.The delegation was in Israel as part of the ‘Leaders of Tomorrow’ programme, organised by the ‘Israel Is’ organisation in partnership with Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs. This is a reciprocal visit following the Israeli delegation’s trip to Dubai earlier this year.
