Mission

Magen David Adom is an organization of trained volunteer and professional medical responders mandated by the Israeli government to provide pre-hospital emergency medical care, including disaster, ambulance and blood services. The MDA National Blood Services Center provides 100% of the blood needs of the Israel Defense Forces and 95% of the blood needs of Israel hospitals. AFMDA funded the construction of the MDA National Blood Services Center, continues to build/renovate MDA’s emergency medical stations throughout Israel, and supply MDA with a wide range of medical supplies and equipment, including most of the organization’s 800 ambulances and Mobile Intensive Care Units (MICUs). These ambulances are on call 24/7, logging nearly 10 million miles and caring for about 570,000 patients a year
