AJC is supporting IsraAID, the Israeli humanitarian relief organization, in providing urgent emergency assistance to the Philippines, which was recently devastated by Typhoon Mangkhut. In the Philippines, with AJC assistance, IsraAID is providing essential emergency relief including water, food, and hygiene items as well as psychosocial trauma support.

“Consistent with our Jewish values to assist those in need and our longstanding friendship with the Philippines, we are pleased join with IsraAID in delivering much needed humanitarian relief during this crisis,” said Shira Loewenberg, Director of AJC’s Asia Pacific Institute. “The Israel-Philippines relationship continues to progress, as evidenced by President Duterte’s recent visit this month, and we at AJC will continue to encourage bilateral cooperation in difficult times.”

Aiding the Philippines is the latest in a long series of cooperative arrangements between AJC and IsraAID to help alleviate humanitarian crises and disasters around the world. In 2014, AJC supported IsraAID providing humanitarian relief to the Philippines in the aftermath of Typhoon Hagupit.
