Reuben Zajac
Participant from Melbourne, Australia who completed the Overseas Volunteer Program during his Gap Year in 2022

Reuben Zajac who is currently completing the מד”א חו”ל – MDA Overseas program reports

“The second week of MDA was jampacked full of learning and excitement. We furthered our knowledge on a variety of diseases and ailments and their treatments and we are now all looking forward to getting onto real life ambulances and helping out in the community with our new knowledge.

Under the guidance of our incredible instructors we learnt treatments for everything from dog and snakebites to heart failure and pneumonia. We also got to see inside an ambulance and you get a feel for where everything was and where we would be spending a lot of our time over the next 5 weeks.”

Reuben Zajac is currently completing the מד”א חו”ל – MDA Overseas program and writes

“During the first week of our MDA training participants were educated in how to perform proper CPR, alongside being able to recognise certain cardio respiratory and nervous diseases and their subsequent treatments.

Additionally the social component to the program has been incredible and has facilitated many new friendships. We were also fortunate to attend the annual ceremony in honour of Yochai Porat at which the previous class received their graduation certificates”

We look forward to hearing more from Reuben Zajac when he starts his volunteering with Magen David Adom
