We are heartbroken by the news of Haiti’s devastating earthquake, which has killed hundreds of people and destroyed thousands of homes.

Jewish Federations are collectively supporting relief efforts through the Joint Distribution Committee, which is providing critically-needed medical supplies to local hospitals treating the wounded.

Through our partnership with JDC, Federations provide a Jewish response to international humanitarian emergencies wherever they happen.

Last year alone, Federations provided over $40 million to the JDC that, in addition to other global needs, helped buttress its 11-year efforts in Haiti and allowed it to swing into action immediately when disaster struck again.

You can donate directly to the efforts here jdc.org/HaitiEarthquake2021, and don’t forget to spread the word on social media.
