IsraAID: Stories of Courage and Resilience

November 30, 2018–February 24, 2019

About the Exhibition

IsraAID provides lifesaving emergency relief for populations affected by natural disasters, epidemics, and post-conflict situations.

Since 2001, IsraAID has become synonymous with rapid response to humanitarian crises, with our medical teams, search and rescue units, water engineers, and post trauma mental experts leading international responses to global emergencies. As of 2017, IsraAID has responded to humanitarian crises in 43 countries, and currently has programs in 20.

IsraAid teams work in full collaboration with local partners, and utilize Israeli innovation in the fields of water and agricultural technology, post-trauma counseling, and field clinics. IsraAID’s relief teams are often among the first to arrive at a disaster scene providing urgent, specialized aid. Once the immediate needs are addressed, the team works with local partners to help affected communities recover and attain stable living.

Stories of Courage and Resilience provides viewers a glimpse into how IsraAID responds to emergencies and supports local communities around the world—from crises and disasters, to rehabilitation and recovery.
