Miriam Ballin, Director of the Psychotrauma Crisis and Response Unit, is not only in charge of the Unit itself, but it also a first responder and more recently, she has even found the time to raise money for a new ambulance!
This United Hatzalah ambulance just arrived and it is because of Miriam, a mother of five, found the time to make this dream of another life-saving ambulance on the road come true!
This “Shaarei Chesed and Rechavia Ambulance” was dedicated on Friday, June 2nd by members of the Shaarei Chesed and Rechavia community. Special thanks to Harvey Schwartz and the Karfunkel family, as well as so many other generous donors. Currently, the community has more than 10 local members who took the ambulance driving course and will be designated drivers and responders. The ambulance will service the city center, free of charge, as a life-saving service by volunteers only.
The meaningful event included words of blessing from the community leader, Rabbi Rosenthal, as well as other distinguished guests such as Rabanit Yemima Mizrachi.
United Hatzalah thanks the many generous donors, some of whom are already devoted medics, and especially Miriam Ballin for raising the funds. This event clearly brought a new layer of unity to the community.
