Saved the terrorist too
Ilan Klein, in London
and at work in Jerusalem need to do your best to save a life, because every life you save is a victory.
“People around the victims of the stabbings also panic. There were a lot of children crying near the scene, and my colleagues and I went to talk to them, treat them and help them.”
Mr Klein, who spoke to MDA UK supporters in London this week, was also part of the response team to the attack on the Henkin family a fortnight ago.
“I can sleep at night, because it’s part of our work. There are times where we need to talk about what we have seen, but now we sleep, and we sleep well because we work hard,” he said.
Mr Klein, who lives near Jerusalem, added: “I want JC readers to know that we are strong. We are in Israel, we are the Jewish people and we are strong enough.”
Meanwhile, British supporters of the Shaare Zedek Medical Centre saw firsthand how their donations had helped save the life of a 25-year-old man who was stabbed by a terrorist.
During a tour of the Jerusalem hospital last Thursday, British trustees who were dedicating the Vivienne Wohl Department of Paediatric Surgery were told that a victim was being treated at the Maurice Wohl Surgical Complex nearby.
Hours later, the centre’s director general told attendees that the victim was recovering due to “the level of equipment, building, and computerising of the complex” they had helped provide.
