Itzhak Sheinfeld Z"l was born in 1969, and started volunteering at MDA Holon in 1985. He was an active volunteer since youth and as soon as he could, advanced to be an ambulance driver.
The family moved to Modi'in in 1996.
Ben Peled, Itzhak's son writes:
"When they moved to Modi'in, dad found out there's no MDA station in the city. So, together with fellow volunteers they began operating the ambulance in shifts to answer emergency calls. I remember when I was a child how my dad used to put on his medic- vest and run out to treat people. That is how I got to know MDA.
In 1999, dad received an honorary certificate for his volunteering at the Modi'in station, and I got to be there for this moving moment. My dad passed away in 2002 from cancer, and since 2009, I have been volunteering at MDA, creating my own path for the good of others."
Our goal is to place 3 smart CPR stations in Modi'in for the benefit of the public and in memory of Itzhak Z"l.

In Israel about 10,000 cardiac arrests occur outside of hospitals each year. 94 out of 100 won't survive!
These statistics are impossible to accept and have to be changed!
In Detroit, survival rates soured to 60% after distributing defibrillators in public spaces!! Israeli Friends of MDA have decided to take action, and together we can change reality in Israel.
In a case of a cardiac arrest, the sooner we administer electric shocks and restart the heart, the greater the chances are for survival.
These defibrillators are placed in smart, highly visual branded compartments, are connected to MDA's database and GPS systems.
Thus, in case of a cardiac arrest, MDA teams will guide the caller to the nearest defibrillator, remotely open the compartment and will continue to provide instructions until MDA team arrives on site.
We urge you to take part in this life saving initiative! Help up save lives and commemorate Itzhak.
Donation of one defibrillator+ smart compartment – 14,900 NIS
