Hatzolah Darom endeavors to save lives and ease pain, by training and equipping volunteers to respond to the emergency needs of the residents of Southern Israel.
Rabbi Michael Schwartz
“Hatzolah Darom operates behind the scenes, far from the spotlight, yet with unconditional professionalism and devotion … your organization is deserving of much indebtedness and respect.”
“There is no doubt that the combined efforts of MDA and Hatzolah volunteers have significantly improved the services available to those in need, thanks to the ability to offer initial medical treatment in the shortest amount of time possible.”
Life may hang in the balance. Whenever disaster strikes anywhere in Southern Israel, the volunteers of Hatzolah Darom are first to respond.
In cooperation with municipal authorities and the regional MDA (Magen David Adom), they are there.
Emergency aid must be rendered at the crucial moment. Delay can be deadly. Yet due to distances between hospitals, the injured may wait for 20 minutes or more in some cases. Trained, equipped Hatzolah Darom volunteers are dispatched to do whatever is necessary until the ambulance arrives.
In the currently unstable situation in Southern Israel, the need for their services has skyrocketed and the number of volunteers grows daily. They willingly enter high-risk areas and put their own lives on hold. They come from all walks of life, native-born sabras and recent immigrants, religious and secular – all unified in a common cause.
To support Hatzolah Darom with urgently needed equipment (ambucycles, defibrillators, two-way radios, first aid kits, helmets, life vests and more) is the highest Mitzvah – because it saves lives.
