The Adele and Joel Sandberg Women’s Initiative

The Adele and Joel Sandberg Women’s Initiative at United Hatzalah was launched in 2021 with the goal of doubling the number of female emergency responders from 1,000 to 2,000 over the course of five years. To reach this goal, supporters of the Women’s Initiative have committed to raising $1.8 million each year for a total of $9 million.

Our Mission

The Adele and Joel Sandberg Women’s Initiative of United Hatzalah unites women all over the world under our shared goal of saving lives in Israel by raising funds to support the training and equipment of female medics. Our aim is to bring together women of diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds who serve the health needs of the entire nation. We are a community of highly engaged women who are dedicated to supporting the life-saving work of our volunteers in Israel.

The Adele and Joel Sandberg Women’s Unit of United Hatzalah grew the number of female volunteers to 1,636 in 2023, increasing the women’s volunteer force by 17% and surpassing the end-of-year goal of 1,400. Hundreds of medics, phlebotomists, and First-Aid providers joined our ranks, and through a partnership with Israel’s Midwives Association, we began onboarding 400 professional midwives to respond to United Hatzalah emergencies. Additionally, United Hatzalah’s Psychotrauma and Crisis Response Unit (PCRU) welcomed many new female responders – mental health professionals with emergency response certification and our medics who received training in emergency trauma response.
