NEW YORK (Jun. 26)
Culminating an emergency effort, which has resulted in more than 70 ambulances being sent to Israel during the current crisis, two more ambulances were officially presented to Malka Ben-Yosef, Consul of Israel, by the American Red Mogen Dovid for Israel and Joseph Gussman, the donor, at special ceremonies at the Israel Consulate.
Warmly hailing Mr. Gussman’s gift was a message from Dr. Joseph Kott, the chairman of the Mages David Adom in Israel, which read in part: “This double gift of ambulances comes at a most critical time. While our casualties during the recent hostilities were minimal alongside our adversaries, to a nation of only two and a half million they were directly felt. Gifts such as these ambulances are helping us carry our current burden.”
