Vital Medical Equipment for Loan
Adina, born 3 months premature, spent her first four months of life hooked up to a respirator due to her underdeveloped lungs. When she was finally able to come home, her young parents were able to borrow a cardiac apnea monitor, free of charge, from Yad Sarah that would instantly alert them should Adina experience respiratory distress. The loan not only ensured that baby Adina would come to no harm, it also brought great comfort and reassurance to her parents.

Help for the Elderly at the Touch of a Button
Shoshana is a frail, 78 year-old widow, living alone in a small, one bedroom apartment. One night last winter, she slipped and fell coming out of her bathtub, and was unable to get up. Fortunately, thanks to one of the vital services provided by Yad Sarah, Shoshana was able to summon help at the touch of a button via her emergency bracelet, which is connected to Yad Sarah's 24/7 emergency call center.
