MDA volunteers project

MDA people sitting around

This is currently a pilot project, which will take place in Netanya.  Children from disadvantaged backgrounds will be trained as volunteers with Magen David Adom.  The children are aged 15, and ordinarily they would never have the confidence to apply for such a position.  When they have finished training, they will be able to go out on ambulances and assist the public as part of the MDA first response team. This experience may lead to a profession for their future.  If this pilot project is successful, MDA and One to One hope to run the programme throughout Israel.
