Our People

Glynis Lipson has been involved with Magen David Adom since 2000. Her first experience with MDA Victoria was phoning for the Annual Appeal. The then Co-President, David Bendel, suggested that she come to a Committee meeting – which was the beginning of a close working relationship with David for the next nine years.

MDA’s sole purpose – the saving of human lives, regardless of race, religion or creed – is what drew her to become involved. Glynis has seen, firsthand in Israel, how MDA workers and volunteers risk their own lives to save others – with devotion, love and passion.

Representing MDA Australia, Glynis has attended the International MDA Conference together with representatives of nineteen other countries – all supporting the work of MDA in Israel.
