Magen David Adom

Magen David Adom (MDA) is the official emergency-service provider for the State of Israel. As part of its services, it runs a large corps of volunteers who come from a broad range of cultural and religious backgrounds across Israeli society. MDA trains these volunteers in emergency medical response, and they participate in lifesaving missions. The MDA volunteer corps includes a special youth division, in which around six thousand Jewish and Arab young adults annually train and volunteer together.
