HIAS provides vital services to refugees and asylum seekers around the world and advocates for their fundamental rights so they can rebuild their lives. HIAS has activated its Emergency Response protocols to provide life-saving support to those displaced. HIAS will work alongside the network of strong emergency and humanitarian actors to closely monitor the emerging needs and coordinate its programming to address them. With the expectation in a change of context, HIAS developed an initial 30-day response plan seeking to focus critical needs as well as HIAS core emergency capabilities. These include:

-Urgent items such as hygiene supplies, blankets, school supplies, and dignity kits

-Cash and voucher assistance to those affected by the crisis, especially those in shelters

-Expanding impact through local partners for additional health, protection, housing/shelter, and legal services

-Mental health and psychosocial support

-Child protection

-Referring and providing information to those affected to additional services

HIAS is also working to ensure the welfare of asylum seekers in Israel whom they serve.
