No gifts of blood for Israel are needed now, according to a statement issued by the National Committee on Control and Authorization of Campaigns of the Jewish Agency for Israel. “Word has been received from the Israel government, and from the Jewish Agency office in Jerusalem, that there is no need for blood donations for Israel at the present time,” the statement said. However, organizations and communities will register the names of those who wish to donate blood, and should it later become necessary, prospective donors will be contacted.”
