Emergency call volunteers have contacted many seniors over the past day to make sure they are ready for the winter system. In a number of cases, volunteer professionals in collaboration with Midrag jumped in to make urgent repairs.
A volunteer at the Relief Center called Ms. Y."I (74) from Rishon Lezion. The conversation revealed that the lady who lives alone, walks around her house and sleeps while wearing a coat, since the air conditioner in her house is not working and she is shivering. A contact was immediately made with a technician who came to her home, replaced the faulty compressor with a new one and repaired the air conditioner.
Also Mrs. L."(73) Jerusalem requested urgent assistance, as the water heating boiler did not work, leaving her without hot water. A technician was also called to her who arrived quickly and repaired the fault.
Moshe Cohen, CEO"To Yad Sara: "Yad Sara’s emergency and assistance volunteer system is on alert and ready to provide assistance to any applicant. I call on each and every one of the citizens, to make sure that the elderly neighbors and family members are ready for winter, and that their house has a Yad Sarah fall sensor. Together we will save lives and go through the winter in peace".
