MDA Israel held a solidarity event on Lag B’omer with communities to honour those effected by Corona Virus around the world
As part of the event, speeches and prayers were held for the sick and words of encouragement given by former Chief Rabbi Israel Meir Lau, Senior Surgeon Yehuda Skornick and a heartwarming presentation by Cantor Shai Abrahamson.
MDA Director General, Eli Bin: “We at Magen David Adom, as Israel’s national emergency medical and blood service organization, are at the forefront of the fight against the corona and have been since the day the virus arrived in Israel. We have not stopped our efforts to contain the virus since. The pandemic has hit everywhere in the world, and in these difficult days we feel compelled to express deep sympathy with those communities in the world that have been affected and that, over the years, have supported us and helped us deal with challenges and difficult situations. During this difficult time, there is little that can be done. We will continue to embrace and share our knowledge and experience. I wish health and recovery to the sick, send condolences to the families who lost their loved ones in the severe epidemic and wish for happy days and good news.”
