United Hatzalah Canada’s Tactical Trauma Kit Campaign
How we’re helping
In recent months, a select number of volunteers have been testing compact trauma kits that have proven to be highly valuable when treating trauma patients. What we have found is that the items in the kit, especially the specialized bandages to treat stabbing and gunshot wounds, are significantly assisting our volunteers to save MORE lives.
Each kit contains all the equipment a volunteer would need to treat a trauma patient and for C$500 you can make that happen. That’s less than $1 a day for a year to save countless people who are hurt by terror attacks, stabbings and shootings.
These small kits are portable and assembled in such a way that volunteers can immediately find top items such as bandages, tourniquets, Leatherman Raptor scissors, high quality flashlights and more.
We are looking to raise funds to ensure a select number of approximately 2,500 medics have access to these vital trauma kits.

Can you imagine?
The need has been alarming. We immediately shifted into gear at United Hatzalah headquarters in Jerusalem yesterday, preparing for this morning’s second charter flight. We have successfully filled to capacity the aircraft with medical equipment for our field hospital in Moldova and other necessary supplies for the refugees such as food and hygiene products.
Our second delegation is already on their way to Ukraine, thanks to our partnership with El AL airlines!
The flight will then return to Israel with Israelis stuck in the region and then is expected to make a return trip with more equipment and bring back additional refugees. The State of Israel called for an emergency evacuation welcoming everyone back home.
And we are pioneering this effort with Operation Orange Wings.
We are so grateful for our donors who have supported our mission of saving lives. If you have not yet given, please do so now. We send strength to the people of Ukraine and the Jewish communities at this dire time of need.
