At the regular weekly meeting of the Beit Shemesh Hatzalah Team (Tzevet Hatzalah), Israel Magen Fund co-founders David Rose and Mati Goldstein were guests of honor, bringing with them urgently needed emergency medical equipment. IMF is dedicated to supporting Israel’s medical and military sectors through transparent, direct and communicative giving.
IMF co-founder David Rose noted that this was the “first donation of its type from the Israel Magen Fund, but certainly not the last. We will continue to partner with the dedicated volunteers of Tzevet Hatzalah and ensure that they have the medical equipment they need to save lives in the Beit Shemesh area.”
During the encounter, Beit Shemesh Hatzalah team commander Yirmi Barzon welcomed the collaboration with the Israel Magen Fund, noting that, through the generosity and kindness of IMF donors, this medical equipment will be used to fix fractures, treat burns, bandage limbs and more.
IMF co-founder Mati Goldstein added that “tonight we have set off on a long road of collaboration. We are pleased to donate this urgently needed, life-saving medical equipment for use by the Beit Shemesh Hatzalah Team. In keeping with the IMF vision, we will continue to donate medical equipment to ensure that every single Tzevet Hatzalah volunteer will have the tools he needs to fulfill his mission.”
