Crossing the Ocean to Save a Finger

cell-phoneA sweet little boy in Ramat Hagolan at play. Fun. Laughter. Shouts of childish joy. Then… an unearthly scream! Ambulance! Siren! A race to the ER with a finger severed from his little hand.

Staff got to work immediately while his parents paced outside in the waiting room, praying that their son would not have to grow up handicapped. Continue reading Crossing the Ocean to Save a Finger

A Letter That Belongs To You, Our Dear Friends and Supporters

pr file

The following was received from a family who benefited from Ezer Mizion’s worldwide What’s App program:

We aren’t used to being on the receiving end. It’s a lot more pleasant for us to always be on the side of the giver, who gives of himself and perhaps even feels a bit of pride that things worked out thanks to him…

 

But this time, when we were compelled to be on the side of the needy and the receiver, it turned out to be a very moving and important experience. We witnessed the broad-scoped response of people with a giant heart and boundless good will. We saw an unbelievably powerful well-oiled machine that is capable of moving, reaching, and propelling forward.

 

And we encountered many, many good souls whose sole interest is to do chessed with someone they don’t even know and who cannot even fathom how critical their deed is for that person. We were deeply moved to see the Jewish nation at its best – doing kindness out of true, unconditional love.

 

All praise to you, the Jewish people!!

Next Stop: Meron!

cell-phoneThe family calls him a malach. A malach is both an angel and a messenger and thirteen years ago, he was truly Hashem’s messenger in saving a life. Yisroel Fischer uses his spare time- and then some- to volunteer in various capacities. He had been called to assist at a MVA with multiple victims and raced to the scene. His assignment: to move the niftarim, who were already placed in body bags, to a different area.  Things were going as smoothly as such a grueling job could until… a bag moved. Yisroel rushed to open it and was shocked to see a baby girl…alive! The MDA took over, sedating her and placing her on a respirator while he returned to his assignment.

Dear Friends!

12 year old girl, daughter of a cancer patient, is celebrating her bat mitzvah. Truth is that her 12th birthday was several months ago. Because of her father’s serious condition, the party the family had planned was cancelled. We want to pamper her with a nice cake. Who can do a cake for tomorrow?

What’s App?

Instant messaging on smartphones can be used for many things. In the Ezer Mizion Family, it is used to see how we can help? Does someone have a problem? Is help needed here? There? Are you in the area? Does your schedule allow you to make a detour? Do you have the equipment/expertise to be of assistance?cell-phone

Information is conveyed instantly and help is on its way. Like Itzik Yitzchaki – Director of Hadera Municipality Workers’ Committee. He was on his way to work, already at the entrance to his office when his phone beeped. About face. Back in the car. There was a mitzvah waiting for him…a great way to start the day.

A ‘family member’ had been also driving to work when his car got stuck in the sand dunes a the city’s edge. When he saw that his own efforts will not work, he didn’t panic. He knew he wasn’t alone. A couple of clicks and he knew help would be on its way. And it was. It didn’t matter if Itzik knew the person. What difference does that make? We’re all brothers. Mission accomplished. Itzik’s day was already a success and he hadn’t even made it to his office yet.
