Magen David Adom Australia’s “Share your Simcha” in support of the Wish Ambulance.
Are you celebrating a Simcha and want to help grant wishes to those in need?
When you request donations in lieu of gifts, you will be directly supporting the Magen David Adom Australia and raising funds to grant WISHES for the WISH Ambulance Initiative in Israel.
The Wish Ambulance is a means to heal the soul of patients and their families who are often heavily burdened by sickness or injury that make it impossible for them to enjoy meaningful moments in life. We offer a service, at no cost to the patient, representative of the humanitarian and Jewish values that form the basis of Magen David Adom.
Manned by a professional volunteer crew of MDA’s finest Paramedics and EMTs, and operated completely free as a service to the public, since 2009 hundreds of wishes have been granted to men, women and children, comforting them and for some, giving hope to carry on.
Many of the patients who are terminally ill, long to do the simplest of tasks such as going to the theatre or a concert, spend an afternoon on the beach, pray at the Western Wall or attend a family Simcha.
These sometimes, very basic wishes, have become impossible due to issues of health and mobility and often require medical supervision that is costly and possibly even dangerous, if performed in a non-professional manner.
To solve this, the unique WISH Ambulance is purpose built and fitted with state of the art equipment. It allows for ease of access and comfort for the patient, allowing them to see their wish fulfilled in the best possible conditions.
In 2019 Magen David Adom Australia proudly raised $500,000 to purchase a new WISH Ambulance for Magen David Adom which will be on the road in 2020.
Any funds raised through our “Share your Simcha” program will go towards granting WISHES for those in need.
To register your Simcha fill out the form below, your event will then appear on our Share your simcha where your friends and family can choose the amount they wish to donate and write a personal message in your honour.
