Rescuers without Borders at the Gaza border

Rescuers without borders medics arrived at the Gaza border on Shabbat/Saturday to help the wounded. Spokeswoman Natalie Sopinsky said they were able to get there quickly because 1) the medics are armed and 2) they have an armored ambulance.

“We have remained there, working hand-in-hand with Magen David Adom. This is ongoing and we are working in shifts with volunteer from around the country. All hands are needed in the war effort and we are doing our best to treat wounded civilians and soldiers.”

Sopinsky stated that they now need a 2nd team to help on the northern border and are requesting funds for the following:

helmet & vest $1250/each

basic medic bag $1600/each

advanced medic bag $3600/each

armoured ambulance $250,000
