American Jews Asked to Give Medical Aid to Red Mogen Dovid in Palestine

The Red Mogen Dovid, which is known popularly as the “Red Cross of Palestine,” today issued an appeal for medical aid for its non-sectarian relief work in Palestine.

Emphasizing the strategic position of the Jewish Homeland, the organization pointed out that it dates back to World War I and has since been functioning as a peacetime emergency ambulance corps, entirely supported by the local population, Christian, Jew and Arab.

Red Mogen Dovid, through special arrangement with the Palestine government, has been-made official agency for protection and welfare of the civilians in case of attack.
