      Le'umi-Card Points for Wheelchairs


      Holders of the Le'umi Card credit card are being asked to donate unused points to Yad Sarah in the charity's drive to acquire 1,500 wheelchairs to be loaned to patients at no cost. The credit card company says points that are not used as of midnight will be erased. During 2012, Yad Sarah loaned about 35,000 wheelchairs as part of its help to about 420,000 people from 100 branches around the country. The charity's 80-million-shekel budget is covered entirely by donations and does not receive government funding.

      Le'umi Card holders interested in donating to Yad Sarah can do so by calling the company's switchboard at 03 617 8888 and telling the operator you want to contribute the points to Yad Sarah.
