Magen David Adom is Israel’s national paramedic and Red Cross service, serving as emergency medical first responders for the state’s 9.3 million people. MDA is the only organization mandated by the Israeli government to serve in this role, but it’s not a government agency, so it relies on people like you for funding. Through your gift, you’re saving lives.
