The Gift of Life made new friends at Sydney’s Emanuel Synagogue’s Mitzvah Day with 15 new volunteers giving blood in the hope of finding a DNA match in the quest to save the lives of four dying Jewish children.

Doctors in Australia, the U.S., Israel and SOuth America need to find suitable donors for the leukaemia-suffering children who have developed immune syndromes.

Shula Endrey-Walder told J-Wire: “The aim of the day was to provide help for women in shelters but we were able to get blood tests done with the 15 and met many more who had not heard of the work we do. In the meantime, the quest for a suitable donor is yet to find hope for any of the children but it has turned up a suitable donor for a Jewish New Yorker suffering from Myelodysplasia.”
