From 2018, Israel's emergency services will be hit with a crisis - the current communication devices which are used in emergency situations will become outdated and discontinued.
This means that ZAKA must immediately replace the smartphones for at least 600 volunteers who are on call 24/7 throughout Israel.
The phones serve as a vital communication tool in receiving emergency life-saving calls and other operational needs. The new phones will literally save lives. They carry sophisticated apps and incorporate state-of-the-art technology that will improve the efficacy and speed of a ZAKA volunteer's response to a call for help. They include GPS technology, the ability to create communications groups limited to the ZAKA volunteers dealing with a particular incident and much more.
You are reading this because you care about people in need.
When disaster strikes, you wish you could ease the pain of those suffering. Especially in Israel, where citizens experience terror attacks too often, you look for ways to help when tragedy strikes.
That's why we're asking you to donate to ZAKA today. Your gift will directly fund the purchase of new communication devices. Because of you, ZAKA volunteers will respond to emergencies faster. And that means more lives saved.
Our fleet of volunteers relies on outdated cell phones. By 2018, the phones will become obsolete. Unless someone steps up to help, ZAKA EMTs simply won't have the technology to do what they do best: respond quickly in the face of disaster.
But you can change all of that.
New phones cost $300 each. They use the most advanced technology. The fastest operating systems. The most reliable hardware.
Your donation to ZAKA will fund the purchase of new phones for our life-saving volunteers to use. Because when a life is on the line, there is not a second to lose.
Please donate today. And provide a lifeline to those who need it most.
Plus, giving to ZAKA is simply smart philanthropy. That's because every dollar you donate to this campaign by December 31, 2017 will be doubled. That means you can have TWICE the impact in equipping ZAKA volunteers with the resources they need to respond quickly.
Your donation is sacred. Your gift will make a difference. Please donate today.
