Hope for Israel During Coronavirus


​"My wife's parents, who live in Petah Tikvah, were recently in close contact with someone who testing positive for coronavirus. They are already both exhibiting early symptoms of it and are in need of oxygen. But they are in a difficult economic situation and neither of them are currently working. Both have serious medical conditions -- her mother is diabetic and immune-compromised, and her father is mere weeks after open heart surgery. Both are high risk of dying if exposed. Yad Sarah's hotline and 24-hour delivery is saving their lives!"

D., an 80-year-old woman living in Jerusalem, is in isolation due to her age and high-risk status if she becomes ill with the coronavirus. She regularly uses an oxygen device, but it was empty. According to D, anyone she contacted refused to help - out of fear of either becoming infected or of infecting her. She turned to Yad Sarah's Home Hospital service and connected with Rafael Gabai. Within two hours, he made sure that a volunteer team - properly protected - made the delivery, placing the equipment at her door. He then called to let her know that the equipment had arrived. During their phone call, D. expressed her heartfelt gratitude and excitement that the equipment had arrived so quickly.
