Rambam Medical Centre in Haifa is short of Transport Incubators. A gift from you this Chanukah will make the difference between life and death for babies in need for years to come.

Yoav

When little Yoav was born, he only weighed 1kg (2lbs 3oz) and was very unwell. He needed to be moved to the Paediatric Emergency Unit quickly but in the most suitable conditions, monitoring both his temperature and oxygen.

Without a Transport Incubator, Yoav could have died or suffered permanent damage.

Over 5000 babies are born every year at Rambam Medical Centre, and there are not enough of these incubators to care for every baby that needs them.

Your donations are urgently needed to purchase a new Transport Incubator and ensure that babies do not suffer avoidable permanent damage.

For the cost of a box of doughnuts, you could save a baby’s life.

This Chanukah we ask you to please take a minute to help more babies like Yoav. If everyone who reads this article were to donate just £10, we would have a new incubator in time for lighting the Chanukiah.

Donate securely via Paypal today. A donation of any size would be truly appreciated.

British Friends of Rambam is a national charity established to promote and support The Rambam Health Care Campus located in Haifa, Israel. Rambam aspires to lead in all aspects of medical care on behalf of the population in Haifa and northern Israel in times of peace and sadly war regardless of race or creed.

British donors make a difference

When midwives taking part in an exchange programme from Homerton Hospital in Hackney noticed that Rambam Medical Centre needed an Incubator, donors from the UK stepped in and helped British Friends of Rambam present a new incubator in memory of Princess Diana.
