NURAN is a non-profit,
non-political association that was established by a number of Jerusalemite
volunteers in 2007. This was the realization of a dream they always
had. Their dream was to provide Emergency Medial First Response and
humanitarian assistance to the citizens and visitors of Jerusalem in times of need and crisis.
Inspired by the inadequate and delayed official ambulance service, Nuran has proved itself as a leader in educating the
people of Jerusalem
to deal with emergency situations and how to implement life-saving measures
prior to the ambulances arrival. This was archived despite the
situation and difficulties in Jerusalem.
various activities were welcomed and well appreciated by the residents of Jerusalem. These volunteer activities
included the immediate Emergency Medial First Response services of the first
responder units, as well as providing first aid courses for schools and the
public, as well as nutrition classes, disaster awareness lectures, first aid
at the Haram Al Sharief
during Friday and Ramadhan prayers and summer camp
field trip escorts.
The absence of financial support was compensated by the deep dedication
and energy of our volunteers. This was driven by their love for Jerusalem. The realization of the lack
of essential Emergency Medical Services, personal experiences, the uniqueness
with its narrow streets inaccessible to vehicles and the lack of exact
addresses also helped to motivate our volunteers.
NURAN is making maximum efforts
to provide the above mentioned services, and to make these services
accessible to everyone no matter who he is, where he lives or what his
beliefs are. The dignity and welfare of Jerusalem
and its citizens will always be
our main goal.
