Applying a century of relief expertise as the world’s leading Jewish humanitarian assistance organization, JDC mobilized within hours of the tragic January 12th, 2010 earthquake in Haiti and has raised some $8.79 million dollars to help the survivors rebuild their lives. As of January 2014, JDC programs have impacted more than 300,000 Haitians — that’s 1 out of every 10 people affected by the catastrophic disaster — and has allocated some 96% of raised funds. We will assign remaining funds for critical reconstruction efforts for the most devastated victims, including children and people with disabilities.

Helping Rebuild Haiti

Hurricane Sandy Response

Amidst these longer-term development and reconstruction efforts, JDC provided emergency support following Hurricane Sandy. Cooperating with previously established partners such as Heart to Heart International and Partners in Health, JDC has been providing some of the hardest-hit areas with anti-cholera community outreach and educational activities, clinical staff support and treatment supplies, ready relief boxes for clinic locations, hygiene kits, and fuel for response vehicles in the hurricane zone.
