112157a7-074a-45bd-99d3-04bd0b2651a0Yehuda, 12, is a boy who suffers from a severe case of muscular dystrophy, a hereditary condition marked by progressive weakening and wasting of the muscles.

He is unable to walk and is confined to a wheelchair for any movement. Yehuda has dreamed of being a United Hatzalah volunteer medic and ambucycle driver.

Finally, his parents turned to Ichud (United) Hatzalah for help on making his dream a reality. His parents together with volunteers from the Bnei Brak chapter of United Hatzalah worked together in order to fulfill Yehuda’s dream and converted his mechanized wheelchair into a full functional ambucycle lookalike for Purim so that Yehuda could go to school and portray his costume to his friends and teachers.
