Israel Magen Fund donated Epinephrine Injectors (EpiPens) to the emergency Beit Shemesh Hatzalah team.
Anaphylaxis is an allergic reaction that occurs within seconds or minutes after being exposed to an allergen like bee sting, latex or nuts. It affects one in fifty people and can be fatal.
EpiPens save lives! With the use of an Epinephrine Injector, paramedics can quickly and effectively inject epinephrine which neutralizes the allergic reaction, allowing the patient to breathe. This gives the emergency team the minutes they need to get the patient to the hospital.
Israel Magen Fund is in the process of raising funds to distribute more EpiPens to other neighborhoods within Bet Shemesh.
Donate today. Your generous donation will mean that those with life-threatening allergies will have a life-saving treatment the minute they need it.
