‘ADOPT A DRIVER’ CAMPAIGN
Volunteer driver, Yoel Hirsch – Kibbutz Afikim – Northern Israel with a patient and family members
Currently, there are over 20,000 Palestinian patients transfers each year, from Gaza and West Bank checkpoints. The transfers are managed from an active roster of 1,900 volunteer drivers.
The aim is to grow the number of transfers by at least 20% every year. And to put in place the organisational and professional infrastructure to meet the growing demand.
Australian, Canadian and American affiliates have agreed to raise a minimum of US$60,000 via a campaign called ’Adopt a Driver.’
