Christian Friends (CFMDA)

What is CFMDA?

Christian Friends of Magen David Adom was founded in 2006 by Christians who want to bless Israel, in a very practical way – all the people of Israel including Jews, Arabs, Bedouin, Druze and others. Their initial aim was to provide an ambulance to be deployed in Israel with the words “Christian Friends of Magen David Adom UK” written on the side. This has served as a witness to the people of Israel that many Christians are standing with them during what is a most difficult time in their history. Through their good work the CFMDA group wants to alter the perceptions of Christians and the Christian faith and demonstrate that everyone can work together.

To date, Christian Friends MDA UK have raised funds for seven ambulances (stationed in Nazareth, Tel Aviv, Carmiel, Rishon, Be’er Sheva, Afula and Jerusalem, the latter two being dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the Hadassah medical convoy massacre), a blood mobile (vehicle for collecting the much needed blood supplies) and an Emergency Room at the MDA station in Kiryat Shomona.

Our Current CFMDA Project – Four Medicycles

We are now raising funds for four medicycles which will represent the healing of the paralytic man at Capernaum. The medicycles will represent the four people who carried the man to Jesus to be healed. This was effectively “the first ambulance”! The collective total cost of these Medicycles is £60,000 (£15,000 each).
