Director of Yad Sarah Moshe Cohen appeared on Channel 10's late night program Night Tube and presented the new device, which could save many lives and prevent untold heartache. About 18,000 Internet surfers and about one million viewers saw the video prepared by Yad Sarah spokesperson Beni Cohen. The video, uploaded to the Facebook page of the Night Tube illustrates the simplicity and efficiency of operating the device, called "taf-tsafa" in Hebrew.

Summer is here, and Israeli children are enjoying their long school vacation. However, avoiding needless tragedies involving children is one of the biggest challenges of the summer. In light of the many cases of babies and toddlers forgotten in hot cars during the summer months, Yad Sarah is offering thousands of devices to prevent the next disaster. They are easy and simple to use, meet strict international standards, and can be borrowed free of charge at the main branches. According to Beterem, a nonprofit organization that aims to promote child safety and create a safer environment for children in Israel, no fewer than 400 children have been forgotten in vehicles over the past 10 years, and, in more than 20 cases, it has ended in cruel and unnecessary death. And, according to the experts, it can happen to any one of us, during a moment of distraction that can never be changed.Call *6444 for further information. *YouTube:sXvPXFeEfBE*
