Whenever there is a need for major medical equipment in Israel, Canadian Magen David Adom (CMDA) puts out the call. And for the 4th time, the generosity of Lenny and Faigel Shapiro of Calgary has come to the fore.

Long-time CMDA supporters, Lenny and Faigel have donated a new 4X4 Paramedic Supervisor Vehicle, valued at $145,000, for use as an emergency response vehicle in complex situations such as mass casualty incidents. The CMDA is the Canadian fundraising arm of Magen David Adom (MDA).

“The CMDA is vital. It is Israel’s only ambulance and emergency medical service for all accidents, sickness and casualties,” says Mr. Shapiro. “Faigel and I are so proud to support their tremendous efforts.” Mr. Shapiro volunteers as the CMDA’s Calgary Chair supporting the work of Sharon Fraiman, Western Regional Director, to engage donors for the funding of medical equipment, supplies, and vehicles for use in Israel.

In January, the Shapiros donated a $130,000 standard ambulance to CMDA, and in March, to celebrate Faigel’s 86th birthday, the Shapiros donated a $38,000 Medi-Cycle Emergency Scooter. They donated another scooter just a few months earlier. The scooters contain life-saving equipment, including a defibrillator, an oxygen tank, and other essential medical equipment. The Shapiros are encouraging others to support CMDA, noting the pandemic forced cancelation of the major annual fund raising event in May.

“The need has never been greater and we strongly urge members of our Jewish community to get involved in helping our precious Israel,” adds Mr. Shapiro. As Regional Chair, he works as a team with Fraiman to connect with donors.
 
“Lenny is like a super hero and we can’t thank him and Faigel enough, especially in these unprecedented times“says Fraiman.
He’s a supportive Chair, a true friend and a wise and kind mentor.”
 
“CMDA is on the front lines helping to prevent the spread of the pandemic throughout Israel,” adds Fraiman. “We are being asked to do more than ever before, and Lenny provides the great leadership required to meet the challenge.”

Thank you for choosing TheJ.Ca as your source for Canadian Jewish News.

We do news differently!

Our positioning as a Zionist News Media platform sets us apart from the rest. While other Canadian Jewish media are advocating increasingly biased progressive political and social agendas, TheJ.Ca is providing more and more readers with a welcome alternative and an ideological home.

We revealed the incursion of anti-Israel progressive elements such as IfNotNow into our communities. We have exposed the distorted hateful agenda of the “progressive” left political radicals who brought Linda Sarsour to our cities, and we were first to report on many disturbing incidents of Nazi-based hate towards Jews across Canada.

But we can’t do it alone. We need your HELP!

Our ability to thrive and grow in 2020 and beyond depends on the generosity of committed readers and supporters like you.

Monthly support is a great way to help us sustain our operations. We greatly appreciate any contributions you can make to support Jewish Journalism.

We thank you for your ongoing support.

Happy reading!
