Yad Sarah ready to help snowbound patients

Yad Sarah is preparing to help patients who need urgent medical care in the eventuality of snow in the capital. Dozens of Nechonit vans with access to wheelchairs and other vehicles with chains on their tires have been prepared to take patients who need kidney dialysis, cancer patients and other emergencies.

In addition, volunteers who own 4X4 vehicles are ready to join the effort in the snow. The voluntary organization headquartered in Sderot Herzl in the Yefe Nof quarter will run a round-the-clock “hot station” to “collect” patients who need treatment at Hadassah University Medical Center in Ein Kerem; the service is not needed to Shaare Zedek Medical Center because it is only a few minutes’ walk away.
