Foreign funders to pay for survivors’ ambulances

A special fund has been established by Magen David Adom’s friends organizations in Britain and France to cover the expenses of ambulance evacuation for Holocaust survivors who cannot afford to pay the fee.

The first-aid, blood-supply and ambulance service said on Sunday that the announcement was made to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day. The fund was initiated to assist some 60,000 of the low-income and distressed Holocaust survivors among the total of some 198,000 living in Israel.
