Faigel Shapiro Honoured by the Calgary Chapter
A special event on May 14th in honour of Faigel Shapiro on the occasion of her 85th birthday attracted more than 300 guests. The highlight of the evening was the presentation by Calgary Chair, Leonard Shapiro and his family, of an Emergency Medical Scooter in recognition of the birthday of his wife, Faigel. The scooter is stationed in Be’ersheva.
“Blood Centre Presentation”
An informative address by guest speaker, Daniel Amzallag, CMDA National Volunteer and Media Coordinator, about the new National Blood Centre currently under construction, centered on the importance of safeguarding Israel’s blood supply. This state-of-the-art, underground complex will ensure a safe supply of blood services to the people of Israel. Proceeds from this event will help supply the new blood centre with the most advanced medical equipment available.
Sharon Fraiman, Western Region Coordinator, thanked Faigel and Leonard Shapiro “for everything they do to make the world brighter for so many people”. The Shapiros’ philanthropic support is crucial to the role Magen David Adom plays in the continued existence of the State of Israel.
