Message to sponsors
Shabbat morning at 6:20am Israel was targeted by Hamas terrorists who crossed its border, infiltrating 25 towns, resulting in many killed, people kidnapped, and hundreds injured. At the same time, thousands of rockets were launched into Israel, reaching Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. A state of war has been declared by Israel's Defense Minister. In this state of emergency - unlike anything Israel has experienced since the Yom Kippur War - Israel needs your urgent support. We are launching an emergency appeal to raise funds for desperately needed supplies to provide our volunteers the equipment they need to save lives and the protective equipment to keep themselves safe. The goal of the campaign is to equip UH volunteer medics with protective vests and helmets, oxygen tanks, defibrillators, trauma bandages and tourniquets. These supplies can be ordered and delivered over the course of the next week to ensure that UH volunteers have everything they need to respond to the ongoing attacks. Our medics are on the front line and in need of support and reinforcements as they respond to lifesaving calls. The time is now. Your support is critical to ensure the safety of our volunteers and the people of Israel. Am Yisrael Chai
