MDA sends equipment to Haiti

Medical equipment for treating victims of Hurricane Jeanne in Haiti has been shipped to the city of Gunayev by Magen David Adom in cooperation with the Health Ministry.

A few weeks ago, thousands of Haitians died or were declared missing in Gunayev, the country's third largest city, which was completely destroyed.

The social and economic situation in Haiti in the wake of the hurricane has been declared a disaster.

MDA board chairman Yohanan Gur said this donation is part of MDA's humanitarian activities around the world.
