In the wake of today’s 8.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Chile, JDC announced that it will collect funds for relief efforts.

“Our hearts go out to the people of Chile and, as we have recently done in Haiti, JDC will leverage our strong partnerships in the region, including the local Chilean Jewish community, to provide a quick and effective response to the needs of those affected,” said JDC CEO Steven Schwager. “We are receiving up-to-the-minute reports from JDC’s Latin America team on the ground, including the impact of the earthquake on Chile’s Jewish community.”

JDC provides technical assistance to many Latin American countries including Chile, and is conducting a full and rapid assessment of the situation by working closely with Chile’s Jewish community to determine critical next steps based on immediate needs of the hardest-hit areas.
