Türkiye & Syria Earthquakes

IsraAID is deploying an Emergency Response Team after two major earthquakes devastated Southern Türkiye & Northern Syria.


Who we are

IsraAID is an international non-governmental humanitarian aid organization based in Israel. Since we were founded in 2001, our teams have worked in emergency and long-term development settings in more than 50 countries around the world.



IsraAID responds to emergencies and helps people affected by crisis re-build their lives, their communities, and their futures, together. From hurricanes to refugee crises to global pandemics, we mobilize quickly and collaborate with communities at the deepest level, staying for as long as it takes.

Spotlight: Haiti

IsraAID first arrived in Haiti in 2010 following the devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake, subsequently responding to Hurricane Matthew in 2016, before completing our programs in 2017. In 2021, we returned after another destructive earthquake with former IsraAID national staff to communities where we previously worked.
“The situation here is not good and these communities were already suffering before. I am happy to see IsraAID return to the communities in which we worked in 2016 and I’m glad to join again to do this important work, in places that other organizations do not reach.”
