We've allocated $30,000 already, but this is an ongoing humanitarian crisis.

JDC at work

We already had relationships with our partners on the ground in Ukraine so that our donors’ support can have the biggest and most immediate impact.  Such as…


JDCreports the following latest numbers: • 10,000 Jewish refugees have been evacuated from Ukraine by JDC. • 2,000 beds on average are occupied in JDC-supported facilities where refugees receive three meals each day.  In Ukraine, JDC's network and staff are in contact with vulnerable and elderly Jews, distributing food and medicine when they can.

Jewish Agency for Israellaunched its Aliyah Express program to expedite the immigration process for Ukrainian olim. Since the war began, 4,000 Jewish refugees have made Aliyah. The Jewish Agency expects that number to increase significantly. 

Hillel Internationalare housing refugees in Poland, Germany, and Moldova and meeting their urgent needs. They are providing hot meals, legal advice on next steps, computer access, and playgrounds for kids.

Chabadhas been providing food, water, medicine, shelter, and when possible safe passage out of Ukraine. They are set up in Hungary and Moldova to do whatever they can for refugees. 

Thank you to our community – this is what YOU have done!
