Humanitarian Aid for Civilians and Refugees in Israel and Gaza
Our hearts and thoughts are with those impacted in Israel, Gaza, and around the world. Greater Houston Community Foundation has curated a list of nonprofit organizations leading relief and recovery efforts. These resources will offer the support needed in the coming days, months, and years to help those impacted.
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is providing independent, impartial medical humanitarian assistance to the people who need it most. MSF cares for people affected by conflict, disease outbreaks, natural and human-made disasters, and exclusion from health care in more than 70 countries. Donate
The Jewish Federation of Greater Houston established a Support for Israel Fund following multi-front attacks on Israel.
As of October 23, 2023, the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston announced that the Gary Rosenthal Family is generously matching all gifts made to the Israel Emergency Fund by November 1 up to $1 million. Foundation fundholders can recommend a grant to the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston Israel Emergency Fund. Donate
Jewish Federations are responding, working with our core partners to support victims of terror, help rebuild damaged infrastructure, and address the unprecedented levels of trauma caused by this horrific attack. Donate
Jewish National Fund-USA stands with Israel amid the most recent and unprecedented attacks against countless civilians. Please donate now to support:
- Evacuation from hardest hit communities on the border including transportation and emergency housing
- Provide hygiene, bedding, and care packages to those in need
- Provide firefighting and protective equipment to those on the front lines
- Offer psychological treatment
- Give the local communities the promise of rebuilding for tomorrow
Following the current escalation, Save the Children immediately dispersed $1M from our Children’s Emergency Fund to ensure our teams have the resources they need to urgently respond to children’s lifesaving needs when it is safe to do so. Donate
Through UNRWA, you can help deliver medical care, food, and other lifesaving services to those in need. Donate
