Israel needs Yad Sarah's help
With Israel under attack, people are relying on Yad Sarah more than ever.
With your help, we can be ready for the challenging days ahead, and every person in Israel will have somewhere to turn in a crisis.
24 hours a day—especially now
Yad Sarah's Emergency Alarm Center has relocated to a shelter.
When the siren goes off in Jerusalem, the volunteers in the call center never have to abandon their posts. They stay on the phone 24 hours a day, helping Israel's isolated elderly stay safe and calm.
Support services in the South
Yad Sarah transferred a bulk load of wheelchairs and oxygen to the South, where people need wheelchairs to quickly move the elderly to shelters, and oxygen for those struggling to breathe in a panic.
Yad Sarah's volunteers are also arranging help for the elderly with their neighbors and driving people with disabilities to safety in wheelchair-accessible vans.
