An earthquake. A tsunami. A civil war. 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 Mexico 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.

Donate now to help support immediate rescue and relief efforts and emergency aid.

Thank You

Every dollar counts.

When you give to JDC’s Disaster Response efforts, you ensure we can continue search and rescue operations after the earthquake in Mexico — and you provide hygiene kits, safe drinking water, and psychosocial support to victims of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

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.
