Bagraim hosted it with Patrick Rolleston from “Israel on our Minds”, and Pastor Russel van Wyk of the Desire of all Nations Church in Ottery Cape Town.

The theme of their fundraising campaign was “Time Saves Lives”, which describes the purpose of the Medicycle which is fully equipped with all medical equipment used by qualified and trained medical personnel to easily navigate the narrow streets of Jerusalem to reach the scene of accidents, terror attacks, and other emergency incidents. The idea is to shorten the waiting period for medical assistance. 

In partnership with Mark Hyman from Magen David Adom, SA, “Israel on our Minds” embarked upon this campaign to fulfil their biblical mandate to love and support the Jewish nation. The purchase of the Medicycle demonstrates that love and support.

Jewish bikers from Free Chapter Cape Town and Christian bikers from Chariots of Fire Biking Ministry, rode from Cape Town to Aquilla Private Game Reserve in Touwsriver, where they were hosted by Searl Derman to lunch and a “Save the Rhino” tour.

Everyone was unanimous in their praise of the wonderful experience of joining together, Jews and gentiles, to support Israel.
