Support those affected by the humanitarian crisis in Israel and Palestine

A mass humanitarian crisis has arisen following the escalation of violence in Israel and Palestine. Our thoughts are with the innocent people and their families impacted by these tragic events.


For those interested in supporting communities affected, please consider the charities and resources provided by the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) listed below.


Please note there are significant safety concerns for NGOs operating in Israel and Palestine, particularly Gaza. It may be challenging for U.S.-based NGOs to communicate with staff to understand the needs on the ground fully. Donors are encouraged to use trust and accept that flexibility is required. Recommended organizations have an ongoing presence in the region or work through local partners. 

The organizations below have been recommended by the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) to help those impacted.
