Latest war updates for Thursday, Jan. 1 just below this post.
Many readers know that Jameel works as a volunteer medic. But now, let me give you some more information.
Jameel volunteers as a medic with United Hatzalah of Israel.
United Hatzalah of Israel is an all-volunteer, non-profit medic (EMS) organization.
The primary role of Hatzalah volunteers - trained and certified as EMTs, Paramedics and MD’s - is to provide an immediate response within 2-4 minutes from the onset of an incident. "First on the scene, first to save lives".
There are more than 1,000 volunteers around the country on alert 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
The secret to Hatzalah’s success lies in the widespread geographic distribution of their first-response volunteers.
Currently many of the volunteers are working around the clock down south saving lives as Israel faces constant rocket attacks. As they too face the constant threat of rocket attacks.
Volunteers like Jameel.
While these volunteers don’t take salaries, saving lives does cost money - there's equipment, fuel, oxygen, flak jackets, helmets, communication equipment, and more.
With the war going on, they are burning through resources at a fast pace and need donations to keep their life savings work going on.
Any and every donation will help save a life in Israel.
