On July 2nd, 2018, a press release “Life & Hope Red Carpet Black Tie Event” was published in a great number of media publications.
The reason, gearing up to celebrate the humanitarian Israeli doctors.
The Life & Hope release can be found here.
Medicine can act as the antidote to animosity. The organizers of this special celebration believe that Israeli doctors have a chance to bring together people who otherwise will keep being alienated from each other and continue brewing enmity.
Israel is already fairly well known for being a ‘Start-Up nation.‘ The people of this country have made international acclaim for many discoveries and innovations in medicine, science, agriculture, technology, etc. Israel is not yet well known for her medical humanitarian aid prowess, her humane might, she has been applying in 140 countries around the world since 1956, for the state of Israel being a ‘Humanitarian-Aid Nation’.
In the United Nations Organization (UN) there is a NEW special classification for disaster response teams – rated from 1-to-4. In this classification Israel is the only country in the world that has received Type 3 Classification.
When catastrophe happens anywhere in the world, Israel Defense Force (IDF) Medical Corps’ emergency field hospital is the first to be called, and is the first to deploy to the disaster area. Israel is then required to create a triage partnership with 2 or 3 other countries to assist in her Aid mission. We heard the miraculous stories of Israel’s Field Hospital and IsraAid rescue missions to tsunami hit Haiti, to earthquake hit Mexico, and the like disaster phenomenon.
However, the world is not yet well informed how much it benefits from Israeli doctors’ work and medical research that takes place in the land of Israel. Not yet but soon to be well introduced to!
That is the purpose of the upcoming International Red Carpet, black-tie, star studded gala, to be attended by dignitaries and who’s who and an opportunity to be seen and see. It is a gala dedicated to the HUMANITARIAN WORK of Israeli doctors. While the attendees mingle, take a photo with the celebrities and show they will really support the cause! The cause, to put Israel on the global map as a ‘Humanitarian Aid Nation‘; “Life and Hope” campaign – is about celebrating the remarkable humanitarian work of Israeli doctors.
It is going to be a salute to Israel’s medical humanitarian work – on Sunday, December 9, 2018, at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel, Miami Beach, Florida – a show of support for the Israeli multi-ethnic health workers’ community working in Israeli hospitals, saving life, healing and helping to foster peace through medicine, a path to a better and more caring world.
As Israeli ‘Save a Child’s Heart’ initiative – based in Holon, just south of Tel Aviv – lead surgeon Dr. Lior Sasson said: “Treating a child suffering from heart disease is like planting a seed of peace.”
On December 9th, 2018, people from all over the world are going to celebrate the remarkable humanitarian aid work of Israeli doctors.
For the coming months, up to the December 9th gala date, the gala organizers will broadcast that Israel is a Humanitarian Country as much as it is a Start-up Country and a powerhouse in so many other fields.
Though the gala campaign’s main task is to support the development of Ziv Medical Center, in the city of Sefad, in northern Israel, it is recognized that the humanitarian labor of assisting Syrian wounded, Arab-Palestinians and people in emergency calamitous situations in countries from Haiti to Nepal, is not the domain of one single Israeli hospital, or even a few Israeli doctors. It is the collective effort of the entire medical sector in Israel.
At the “Life and Hope” gala it would be an honor to be able to share stories told by Israeli doctors who put their expertise into practice to help other fellow human being in places where they become the lifesaving rope. The campaign, to culminate with the gala in which the expected 2000 guests, among them most distinguished personalities from all walks of life, will join in celebration and support of the incredible work Israeli doctors are performing.
What Will the Money Raised Do?
Besides reinforcing awareness about Israel’s efforts to help heal the sick and the wounded throughout the world, money raised will be 100% directed to the construction of a regional rehabilitation center in northern Israel. The foreseeing hope is that through this center the international community will use the tremendous expertise, experience, knowledge and goodwill of Israeli doctors to help provide a future for the thousands of traumatized children, women and young men who, without this help, will face a very difficult future.
This gala will be one of the largest ecumenical and Multi-Ethnic gatherings, in support of the work of Israeli doctors who provide relief the world over.
When disaster strikes, Israeli-Jews, Christians, Muslims, Druze, Circassian health providers in the State of Israel are the first to travel to countries as far away as Mexico, Haiti, Congo, Turkey, Sri Lanka and many others and simply save the life of the stricken.
Besides curing the body, these Israeli health providers foster what no politics can: the love and understanding between people of different nationalities and faiths.
This “life and Hope” gala will offer excellent opportunities for brands to foster their presence and attach their name to some of the noblest of human enterprises: providing health relief to those in pain and suffering, getting people and cultures closer to each other and providing a future, based on today’s young people who would be leading the world of tomorrow, understanding.
Inspiring the future generation to be responsible for bringing the world closer together through Humanitarianism, while supporting Israeli doctors who do the saving life hard labor, is what the Jewish sages call a mitzvah – a genuine good deed.
