COVID-19 Response, India: 

In recent weeks, India has been hit by an unprecedented and devastating wave of COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations, and deaths. Daily cases have crossed 400,000 – the most of any country at any point during the pandemic – with many more likely to be going untested and unreported. Major shortages of medical supplies, including crucial oxygen concentrators and cylinders, have left healthcare providers struggling to cope. Urgent support is needed to provide India’s medical system with lifesaving supplies, while also dealing with the growing mental health crisis and other secondary consequences of the pandemic. 

IsraAID is currently mobilizing to respond in India, together with partners. We are working with the district council and our local partner organization Gabriel Project Mumbai in Palghar, a rural area north of Mumbai, to support 20 government-run hospitals serving a population of over 4 million people. 

Volcanic Eruptions, St. Vincent and the Grenadines:

IsraAID has deployed an Emergency Response Team to St. Vincent and the Grenadines due to ongoing volcanic activity at the La Soufrière volcano. More than 12,000 people are displaced, with more than 8,000 exposed to very high hazard levels in the area near to the volcano. IsraAID's response will focus on safe water access, hygiene kit distributions, Psychological First Aid, and public health interventions - in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Background to the Emergency Response Fund

Since 2001, IsraAID’s specialist teams have responded to disasters in every corner of the world, providing emergency medical care, post-trauma mental health support, relief items, and water, sanitation and hygiene solutions.

Our ability to bring that aid to communities in need relies on quickly galvanizing financial support, yet emergency response funding is often tied to media attention. Once the news cycle moves on, humanitarian organizations are forced to follow.

In 2017, IsraAID launched its Emergency Response Fund to shift this paradigm. Now, IsraAID’s teams can deploy to wherever they are needed, without waiting for seed funding. By reaching affected communities sooner, we can save more lives and have a greater impact.

Now, more than ever, with frequent crises occurring across the globe, we need your help to guarantee IsraAID’s rapid response to disasters and emergencies worldwide. Please donate today.
