Our mission is to support people affected by humanitarian crisis. We partner with local communities around the world to provide urgent aid, assist in recovery, and reduce the risk of future disasters.


Founded in 2001 as a coalition of Israeli organizations working in disaster relief and international development, IsraAID has grown into an independent NGO and the largest humanitarian aid organization in Israel.

From earthquakes and hurricanes to epidemics and forced displacement, IsraAID has been at the forefront of responding to major humanitarian crises worldwide. We have worked in more than 50 countries and at any one time have around 300 staff members worldwide.

We collaborate with communities at the deepest level in an approach we call ‘Communities First’. The communities we work with supply local knowledge, experience, people-power, and tools. We deliver technologies, resources, and long-developed professional expertise (oftentimes from Israel, which has a lot of experience with trauma, water scarcity, and disaster relief and preparedness.)
