Yeshiva University to Haiti

January 11, 2015 - January 18, 2015

Partner: Yeshiva University

Applying nearly a century of relief expertise as the world’s largest Jewish humanitarian assistance organization, JDC mobilized within hours of the tragic January 2010 earthquake in Haiti and has raised some $8.6 million dollars to help the survivors rebuild their lives. 

Within 48 hours, JDC allocated initial emergency relief funds and soon thereafter a scoping team of JDC professionals was on the ground.  As of January 2015, JDC has allocated 100% of funds raised, of which the final amount of its funding was assigned to critical reconstruction efforts and for continued support for earthquake victims.

Each day will include volunteer work and activities and/or time dedicated to learning about Haiti’s history, development needs, and JDC programs that are helping to address humanitarian issues in Haiti and around the world.
