About Davidi Dahan

Davidi Dahan lives with his wife and daughters in Modiin Illit and has been a volunteer with United Hatzalah of Israel since he was 19 years old.

Davidi’ impetus to become a United Hatzalah volunteer has tragic origins. As a young man, Davidi’s otherwise healthy young mother suffered a stroke and collapsed in his arms. He hugged and rocked his mother for 30 minutes waiting for an ambulance while his four younger siblings watched wishing there was something Davidi could do. His mother spent a week, unconscious in the hospital before passing away. After the week of mourning, Davidi joined an EMT course and began volunteering with United Hatzalah, vowing never to feel that sense of helplessness in the face of such urgent need.

Davidi has been at the scene of hundreds of emergency calls but one that will stay with him forever is a call he received for a two year old girl having breathing problems. Davidi arrived at the address and as he began treating the young girl he noticed her older siblings a little further down the hall. He saw them looking on with that same fearful look that his own siblings had the day their mother collapsed. Davidi smiled at the girl’s siblings and reassured them that their sister will be OK; he was there, he had the training to treat her, and he would take care of her.
