An earthquake. A tsunami. A volcano. A public health crisis. The lives of millions annually are irrevocably altered in an instant when natural disasters or other calamities strike. We leverage more than a century of experience helping Jewish communities to provide expert, immediate humanitarian aid for communities in crisis around the world.

From Guatemala to Nepal and from the Philippines to the Caribbean, we're on the ground when disaster strikes, working with communities to not just recover but truly rebuild — crafting innovative, sustainable solutions to help ensure that the most vulnerable people in the hardest-hit towns and cities come back stronger than ever before.

Thank You

Every dollar counts.

When you give to JDC’s Disaster Response efforts, you ensure we can continue working with the Guatemalan Jewish community and trusted local partners to distribute critically needed relief items to those in the areas hardest-hit by the Fuego volcano and plan for the rebuilding of schools and clinics.

And that’s not all — as the acute needs of the region change day to day, you guarantee we’ll be able to respond in the ways that matter most to those in need.
