Canadian Magen David Adom

Since 1976, Canadian Magen David Adom for Israel (CMDA) has been the sole authorized fund-raising organization in Canada dedicated to supplying ambulances, medical equipment, supplies and blood testing kits to support the life saving efforts of MDA in Israel. All of CMDA’s assistance to MDA has been made possible solely through the generous donations of people just like you.

With its Head of Operations in Montreal and supporting Chapters across the country, CMDA’s commitment to this cause runs deep with over 100 dedicated volunteers and a permanent staff of full-time professionals.

In addition to providing ongoing support for the people of Israel, CMDA has contributed 20 percent of the funds required to build the National Headquarters of MDA’s Blood Bank located in the Tel-Ha’shomer complex just outside Tel Aviv, supplied 100 of the 800 Ambulances in service today and 25 of the 200 emergency First-Responder Medical Scooters with plans to purchase another eight this year. Two of the Mobile Blood Units and $1.2 million in annual contributions to purchase specialized blood testing kits have all been possible due to your generous donations.

MDA is not a government agency, and therefore, depends heavily on donations, primarily from the Diaspora. In order to continue safeguarding lives in routine times and in times of emergency, MDA requires constant support.

Today, and every day, CMDA saves lives.
