Israel Sends Rescue Team to Haiti

January 15, 2010

As the desperate situation in Haiti continues, we at J Street are moved by the outpouring of support and aid from around the globe – including from Israel, which sent a 220-member rescue team to assist with the relief effort.  We wanted to make sure to provide some ways in which you can support the disaster relief efforts as well. We’re pitching in what we can and hope that you’ll take a moment to do the same.  Repair the World has put together a list of a few organizations doing emergency relief work in Haiti:

American Jewish World Service · Through grants and on-the-ground service, AJWS works around the world to alleviate hunger, poverty and disease. American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee · For nearly 100 years, JDC has worked as a leading emergency relief organization within the Jewish world and built expertise they now use in urgent situations around the world. Partners in Health · Partners in Health has a long history of working in Haiti, working to build capacity for modern medicine and alleviate the root causes of disease in their communities.
