Founded in 2001, IsraAID is an Israel-based international non-governmental organization. Since its inception, IsraAID has worked in emergency and long-term development settings in 47 countries. Drawing on an extensive roster of leading Israeli and international experts, the organization is in a unique position to design and implement high-quality, cost-effective and innovative programming that fully reflects the immediate and long-term needs of populations affected by disasters worldwide.

ISRAAID’S VISION

We want people affected by crisis and displacement to have safe and equal access to opportunities, information and quality services; and live in an environment where their dignity, rights and safety are respected, protected and fulfilled.

OUR MISSION

We support and meet the changing needs of populations affected by conflict, natural disasters, acute poverty, discrimination and displacement as they move from crisis to reconstruction, recovery, and, eventually, to sustainable living.
