“Peace is Israelis’ and Palestinians’ common goal”, said award-winning students Noam Shitrit and Noam Eliaz, volunteers in MDA Israel. They are students at World ORT-affiliated Shikma High School in Israel. At only 17 years old, they already have taken care of a Palestinian child, burnt by a Hamas rocket at the Gaza border. Both students grew up in Gush Katif and are part of the 8,000 Israelis who had to leave their homes as part of the country’s unilateral disengagement from Gaza in 2005. In this video, they share what they’ve learned from their experiences helping Israelis and Palestinians in need.
Magen David Adom stands for the right treat all patients in any situation in Israel, regardless of the religion or ethnicity.
