When two Israeli policemen were shot on Har HaBayit, each second counted.
When a terrorist entered the home of Yosef, Chaya, and Elad Salomon, each second counted.
After each and every terror attack or medical emergency… each second counts.
When lives are at stake, there is simply no time to lose.
The first four minutes after an emergency often determine the difference between life and death. ZAKA Rapid Rescue Motorcycle cuts the response time to a fraction of what a normal ambulance would require.
ZAKA established Israel’s very first Rapid Rescue Motorcycle Unit to deal with accidents or disaster that requires a faster response time in order to save lives. Mobility, advanced technology and fast professional medical treatment are all proven factors in saving thousands of lives. Currently, with dozens of motorcycles equipped with life-saving medical supplies and utilized by paramedic volunteers, ZAKA’s Rapid Rescue Motorcycle Unit responds to more than 7,000 incidents a year.
But there are so many more people to help. So many more lives to save.
Now, more than ever, it is so important to put life-saving Rapid Rescue Motorcycle on the road.
Your donation delivers emergency and life-saving medical assistance to the injured. ZAKA medics are always the last to leave the emergency scene as they carry out their holy work, often on their hands and knees, painstakingly clearing the site of all human remains and spilled blood.
Your generosity will honor the memories of Yosef Salomon, Chaya Salomon, and Elad Salomon, three precious souls who left this world too early.
The ZAKA medic you put on the road will do everything he can to honor the dead and ensure a proper burial in keeping with Jewish law and the sensitivities of any other religions when relevant.
With the increase in terror, emergencies and population growth, ZAKA is in dire need of five new ambulance-motorcycles to save lives throughout Israel.
The cost to purchase a new, fully equipped and insured ZAKA ambulance-motorcycle is $36,000. We turn to you, our dear friends and supporters, with a heartfelt plea: partner with ZAKA in our holy work and help us procure an urgently needed ZAKA ambulance-motorcycle.
Our goal is to raise $18,000. We have a donor who will match these funds, bringing us to our target of $36,000 for the five ambulances. This is an all or nothing opportunity and we must succeed as lives are at stake.
Now more than, the people of Israel need your help in supporting ZAKA.
Because of you, ZAKA ambulance-motorcycles will be on call 24/7, ready to help in any emergency situation. ZAKA Rapid Rescue Motorcycles are equipped with emergency first aid, chesed shel emet supplies (to properly take care of the deceased), rescue equipment and more.
ZAKA volunteers carry out their holy work in the field. Those who provide them with the tools they need to do their work become partners in their sacred mission. There has never been a more opportune time to partner with ZAKA.
ZAKA volunteers "routine" work of rescue and recovery for road accidents, suicides and other tragic deaths continues even when they also must handle terror attacks. Volunteers remain on call every hour of the day, including Shabbat, ready to rush to any tragic scene and carry out their sacred mission, which is:
To save those who can be saved and honor those who cannot.
No matter where you live in the world, you can partner with ZAKA for the benefit of mankind. Help save lives, strengthen faith, and strengthen Israel.
I thank you in advance for joining in this holy mission,
Yehuda Meshi-Zahav ZAKA Chairman.
