Life may hang in the balance. Whenever disaster strikes anywhere in Southern Israel, the volunteers of Hatzolah Darom are first to respond.
In cooperation with municipal authorities and the regional MDA (Magen David Adom), they are there.
Emergency aid must be rendered at the crucial moment. Delay can be deadly. Yet due to distances between hospitals, the injured may wait for 20 minutes or more in some cases. Trained, equipped Hatzolah Darom volunteers are dispatched to do whatever is necessary until the ambulance arrives.
In the currently unstable situation in Southern Israel, the need for their services has skyrocketed and the number of volunteers grows daily. They willingly enter high-risk areas and put their own lives on hold. They come from all walks of life, native-born sabras and recent immigrants, religious and secular – all unified in a common cause.
To support Hatzolah Darom with urgently needed equipment (ambucycles, defibrillators, two-way radios, first aid kits, helmets, life vests and more) is the highest Mitzvah – because it saves lives we are calling upon your assistance and help for support in our life saving work:

Hatzolah Darom endeavors to save lives and ease pain, by training and equipping volunteers to respond to the emergency needs of the residents of Southern Israel.
The continuing emergency in Southern Israel shows no signs of let-up, putting life and limb in danger. Kassam rockets, as well as accidents on the high-speed highways, heart attacks, serious injuries in the home, school or workplace, call for well-equipped and dedicated first responders.
That’s where Hatzolah Darom plays a key role – galvanizing a team of trained volunteers who are ready 24/7 to speed to the scene and render first aid.
Add to this the fact that there are only 3 hospitals to serve this far-flung region, which means ambulance wait times that can make the difference between life and death. That’s where Hatzolah Darom comes in – with its dedicated, certified first responders, working in tandem with Magen David Adom and local municipalities to be there in the first golden minutes and save lives.
“Hatzolah Darom operates behind the scenes, far from the spotlight, yet with unconditional professionalism and devotion … your organization is deserving of much indebtedness and respect.”
Tzvi Tzilker, Mayor of Ashdod

Hatzalah Darom does not skimp on its resources, and invests huge sums in purchasing the highest quality and best life-saving equipment on the market. The organization’s volunteers carry first aid bags full of expensive items of equipment which repeatedly justify their price tag after being used over and over again to save lives. The organization also invests in the community and distributes first aid cabinets to public places with many people, while providing community training for its emergency use during the first minutes until emergency forces arrive.
At Hatzalah Darom, we also concern ourselves with the needs of our devoted volunteers. Activity and bonding days several times a year, sometimes just for the volunteers and sometimes with their spouse or entire family. Additional special evenings for training and courses regarding professional medical or halachic issues. The organization guides the volunteers in their work and makes sure they are not harmed by their activities.
