donate to Save a Life Fund for Israel
You can help Israeli soldiers as they continue Operation Iron Sword to respond to the horrific terrorist attacks of October 7th, defend Israel and save Israeli lives. Despite Israel’s best efforts, many traumatic injuries to Israeli soldiers & civilians are inevitable. Your donation will bring specialized hemorrhage control tourniquets quickly to battle positions and medical professionals in Israel to save lives.
Designed by a field doctor based on real world experience in Iraq and Afghanistan, these specialized tourniquets have proven to save lives. They have been used in trauma environments arounds the world — most recently in Ukraine.
By donating to the Save a Life fund , you’re contributing to the immediate purchase of these life saving devices which will be – as quickly as humanly possible – delivered to Israel. They are manufactured and assembled in the USA. The first batch arrived in Israel last week and is already in the field.
