United Hatzalah Emergency COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response Fund


Israel is slowly emerging from a national lockdown. Even as the transition back to normal continue, it's still too early to say that the pandemic is over. The risk of a second wave of infection looms over Israel. This uncertainty means that our national network of volunteers must continue to be equipped with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other essential medical supplies, like oxygen, to ensure their safety and ability to respond to lifesaving emergencies.

The return to a daily routine means that our National Humanitarian Hotline has been integrated back to our central dispatch. During its operation, the hotline responded to nearly 30,000 calls helping the elderly and infirm ensuring that Israel's most vulnerable citizens had everything they need.

Our efforts during these challenging times came at the expense of our general operating costs.

Our community of 6,000+ highly trained volunteer medics, continue to play a key role across Israel, at no charge. But this is only possible with your support. Please donate today and help ensure the safety of our volunteers.



The incremental costs to United Hatzalah of responding to this crisis, including PPE kits, additional medical equipment and increased staff, is approximately $28,000 per day.

Personal protective equipment (PPE) Kit includes a protective apron, a face shield, a mask, and gloves $50
Additional dispatch staff cost per day $250
Oxygen Tanks and Other Critical Equipment $360

Harvey and Gloria Kaylie

Harvey and Gloria Kaylie

The Kaylies have made a permanent impact on the nation of Israel and the Jewish community in the United States. Since the 1970s, Harvey has made a prestigious and economic impact on Israel through the success of Ravon Electronics, a branch of the 1969-founded company Mini-Circuits Inc., of which Harvey was President. With Gloria by his side in spirit and in deed, Harvey made the company a global leader in radio frequency and microwave signal processing components.

However, this was just the start. Throughout their lives the Kaylies have made giving a priority. Today, their philanthropy has helped young people with developmental disabilities integrate with their peers via Camp Kaylie; benefitted Jewish education through support of Yeshiva University, Yeshiva Har Torah, and a variety of Jewish Federations; and they have impacted social services and health care in Israel. Their most recent donation for establishment of the Kaylie Kidney Health Center of Excellence at Rambam Health Care Campus will facilitate innovative kidney research—impacting kidney health at a global level, and ensuring the best possible medical care for kidney patients in Israel’s northern region.

Saving Time. Saving Lives.

Founded in 2006, United Hatzalah has grown to become the largest independent, non-profit, nationaly recognized and fully-volunteer emergency medical services (EMS) orginization in Israel, responding to over 900 emergency calls a day. United Hatzalah's 6,000 medics, paramedics, and doctors create a web of emergency first responders, each connected to a GPS-based dispatch system which, together with our innovative transportation solutions, provids lifesaving aid faster than any other EMS organization in the world, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

United Hatzalah has democratized access to emergency medical services by providing its services free of charge and has improved victim outcomes by getting first responders to the scene of an emergency three times faster than an ambulance. Our volunteers, spotted at every medical emergency, have been dubbed 'Angels in Orange' after their trademark orange vests. United Hatzalah has set a goal to grow to 6,000 volunteer medics in Israel by 2020 and further reduce the average response time to just 90 seconds nationwide.
