As millions of people around the world mark World Cancer Day on February 4, Itai Shamir, Program Director of JDC’s WHEP Program, recalls the power of community when thousands of women in Sarajevo gathered for the annual Race for the Cure.
As the world is focused on the plight of those being evacuated from the besieged city of Aleppo, the Jewish Coalition for Disaster Relief (JCDR), chaired by JDC, has swiftly moved to meet the needs of these beleaguered civilians.
As raging fires in Israel caused scores of injuries and widespread fear, the evacuation of more than 70,000, and the destruction of hundreds of homes and businesses, JDC mobilized its Israel emergency response system and wide-ranging network of government of Israel, local municipality, and NGO partners to assess needs and ensure the most vulnerable Israelis aided by JDC are safe and cared.
More than a week after Hurricane Matthew wreaked widespread devastation on Haiti, JDC and its partner Heart to Heart International are providing critical aid to hundreds of people including hygiene kits and water purification tablets.
More than 150 Jewish professionals from across the former Soviet Union recently participated in JDC's sixth annual Jewish Educators' Conference, held at the Hesed Eliyahu social welfare center in Tbilisi, Georgia.
This summer, a JDC Ambassadors trip set off to build bridges of a most personal kind with Jews in Hungary and the former Yugoslavia – Serbia, Bosnia and Croatia – and to better understand how they live.
Today's visit to a very tight-knit community that lost a daughter was heart-wrenching. We brought our condolences,
visited with each family to understand how they are surviving, and delivered critically needed aid.
