MDA pledges to deal with sexual harassment and rape allegations

In the wake of an exposé on Channel 1 of reported sexual harassment and rapes of teenage girl volunteers working in Magen David Adom ambulances and other facilities,MDA director-general Eli Bin on Wednesday promised to appoint an employee in each of its 10 regions to accept and deal with such complaints.

The 85-year-old first aid, ambulance and blood-supply organization currently has only one such official in the whole country.

“I have asked for the name of the manager who allegedly raped a girl, and if it’s true, he will not work here anymore,” Bin told the Knesset Committee for the Advancement of Women on Wednesday, saying he is responsible for the safety of the girls and boys volunteering for the organization and will take responsibility for dealing with the matter.
