Magen David Adom (MDA)

Ramla, Israel

Magen David Adom (MDA) dedicated the world’s first subterranean and shielded national blood services center in Ramla on May 2022. The Marcus National Blood Services Center is designed to protect Israel’s strategic blood reserves from missile, chemical and biological attacks – as well as earthquakes. The facility was constructed at a cost of $135 million, funded primarily by American Friends of Magen David Adom (AFMDA). Joel Amit was chosen to design his take on MDA’s logo for the building. Amit created a large scale artwork made of hundreds of David Stars and tiny Angel wings.
