Hundreds of Wheelchairs Held Up by Ashdod Strike


The Yad Sarah charitable organization asked the workers' committee of the Ashdod port, Monday to process a container carrying hundreds of wheelchairs, which has been held up by the strike at the port. As of late Monday morning, there was no response.

The wheelchairs are needed to allow hundreds of hospital patients to go home to spend Passover with their families. The container was supposed to reach Yad Sarah's main warehouse on Monday to allow the wheelchairs to reach Yad Sarah branches in time for the weekend, which is the peak period for the patients to borrow equipment for the holiday.
