Founded in 2001, IsraAID is an Israel's largest humanitarian aid agency. Its mission is to support people affected by humanitarian crisis worldwide by partnering with local communities to provide urgent aid, assist in recovery, and reduce the risk of future disasters. When strong people the world over have their resilience tested by disasters and crises, IsraAID mobilizes and responds quickly. From earthquakes and hurricanes to epidemics and forced displacement, utilizing its unique Israeli expertise and know-how IsraAID has been at the forefront of response. Its extensive roster of Israeli and international experts collaborate with communities at the deepest level, regardless of politics, religion, and ethnicity. Working hand-in-hand with the local population for as long as it takes, together they build sustainable and long-term solutions. Throughout its 20-year history, IsraAID and its teams have responded to more than 90 emergencies, working in over 55 countries to support millions of beneficiaries. 
In recent months, India has been hit by a catastrophic second wave of COVID-19 infections. IsraAID partnered with Gabriel Project Mumbai, a local, community-based organization, to bring urgently needed medical supplies, nurses, protective equipment, and food packages, to communities in rural Palghar, where government hospitals serve a population of over 4 million people.

In 2021, IsraAID partnered with the Government of Eswatini – the small southern African country formerly known as Swaziland – to support the planning and implementation of their national COVID-19 vaccination program, thanks to the Kirsh Foundation.
In 2019, communities across the islands of Grand Bahama and Abaco in the Bahamas were hit by Hurricane Dorian, the worst disaster in the country’s history. Water sources across the affected area were left contaminated. From 2020 to 2021, IsraAID partnered with the local water authorities and UMCOR to construct water monitoring systems, providing constant real-time data on water quality in Grand Bahama and Abaco.
