Amid news out of Nepal that continues to shock and sadden — including a death toll of more than 4,000 in the wake of Saturday's devastating earthquake — JDC is working around the clock to deliver critical aid to survivors.
Because of your support we are already in action on the ground.
Working with local organizations and our trusted international partners, we are providing relief to those worst affected by the disaster.
- Bringing medical supplies, including neonatal incubators, in partnership with the IDF field hospital
- Teaming up with Tevel b’Tzedek to meet emergency needs, like establishing temporary learning spaces, developing community-based support programs for women and children, and helping earthquake victims rebuild their houses
- Addressing the needs of children, including shelter, water, nutrition, and sanitation, in collaboration with UNICEF
- Partnering with the Afya Foundation and Heart to Heart International to distribute medical supplies and bring emergency medical teams to currently inaccessible areas
JDC’s expert disaster response team — which has served most recently in the Philippines, Haiti, Japan, and South Asia after the Indian Ocean tsunami — is set to arrive in Kathmandu within 48 hours to evaluate how JDC can best assist the Nepalese people immediately and on their road to recovery.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Nepalese people.
