Help Hatzalah Volunteers on the Ground
Join in supporting United Hatzalah to fund life-saving equipment
Who We Are: United Hatzalah is a network of 7,000 volunteer medics all across Israel, responding to medical emergencies with the fastest response time in the world. Our volunteers are Jewish, Muslim, Christian, Druze, who drop everything they are doing at a moment’s notice when dispatched using our technology to arrive on scene with Ambucycles – medically equipped motorcycles – or other vehicles, to provide life saving care in the moments that separate life and death.
What We’re Doing: Now When the war started in the south of Israel, United Hatzalah volunteers were first on the front lines, many living in the communities that were attacked, and treated injured civilians, set up a field hospital, and transported injured to the hospital.
What We Need: We need to raise $20.3 million for protective vests and helmets, oxygen tanks, defibrillators, trauma bandages and tourniquets, helicopter transport for patients, purchasing vehicles that can transport patients and distribute supplies across the south, continuing a major field hospital and logistics center set up near the Gaza border.

The funds will be distributed through a public committee headed by Elyezer Shkedy and Natan Sharansky.

Our exceptional volunteers willingly put themselves in harm’s way to personally deliver these supplies to our brave servicemen and servicewomen.
