Crisis Response

We respond immediately in the face of conflict and disaster, including with shelter, health and urgent food support. In the aftermath we support recovery, with a focus on livelihoods.

Prioritising Women and Girls

Across the world climate change and disasters affect women and girls in unique ways that require tailored interventions. We ensure all our projects consider their experiences and priorities.

Disaster Preparedness

We work with a network of trusted local partners in disaster-prone regions of the world, helping them prepare for disasters before they occur, and respond quickly and effectively when they do.

In August 2021, Rosette lost everything in the devastating Earthquake which hit Haiti. Already unable to work due to an ongoing disability, she had now lost her home and her possessions too. With her whole family, she sheltered outside while, together with our local partner, we provided emergency food support. 

On International Women’s Day, she received the keys to her new home – built to withstand future earthquakes and the tropical storms that regularly batter the small country. 

“I never thought I could build such a beautiful house, it was like a dream. It was an honour for me as a disabled woman to receive my keys on International Women’s Day”.

Now Rosette can begin to properly rebuild her life, in safety and dignity. World Jewish Relief supported others like Rosette after the earthquake, not just to survive the immediate challenges, but to start to afresh, with new homes and livelihood opportunities.
