GAP YEAR stu­dents in Is­rael are be­ing en­cour­aged to take part in a spe­cial blood do­na­tion ses­sion in Jerusalem next Fri­day at the Magen David Adom head­quar­ters. Since the “mad cow dis­ease” out­break, Britons have not been al­lowed to do­nate blood for Is­rael. But do­na­tions are now ac­cept- ed from those born in 1997. MDA UK chief ex­ec­u­tive, Daniel Burger, said: “For the first time in a very long time, through giv­ing blood, young Bri­tish peo­ple can make a real dif­fer­ence in help­ing MDA to save lives in Is­rael. This comes at a time when our blood ser­vices have been pushed to the limit.”
