In December 2015, a large group of Bialik College students the MDA Petach Tikva Station where, as well as touring the station, they were given a short instruction in Basic CPR by MDA volunteers their own age – Eli and Tehila.
Following the instruction and practice, the students saw a presentation on MDA lifesaving vehicles, along with the advanced equipment used by MDA teams, some of whom are, again, young people their own age.
One of the Bialik students commented, “It’s impressive to meet students, like us, in Israel who are saving lives. This visit was very important. I enjoyed learning about the organisation and also receiving the basic tools to save a life.”
The MDA Australia Desk Manager of the International Relations Department said that, “The Jewish community in Australia is very connected with MDA and we’re always happy to host visits by families, individuals and large school groups who support MDA.”
