Only 16 hours after the earthquake in Turkey, IsraAID was on the ground providing humanitarian assistance.

Two days after the invasion of Ukraine, IsraAID was on the border with Moldova assisting refugees and providing humanitarian aid. Since then, IsraAID built out a humanitarian logistics hub in Romania that has moved more than $30 million of medical supplies and other aid into Ukraine, provided Israeli water technology to bring drinking water to the city of Mykolaiv after the water system was bombed, and partnered with First Lady Olena Zelenska to provide psychological trauma support to Ukrainian civilians.

Currently active in 16 countries around the world, IsraAID is the largest nongovernmental, nonpolitical humanitarian aid and disaster relief organization based in Israel.

Join us March 30 at 6:30pm to hear from Ms. Naama Gorodischer, IsraAID’s Global Chief Humanitarian and Resilience Officer.
