NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AJC announced a grant to IsraAID, a leading Israeli non-governmental relief organization, to help bring humanitarian assistance to the Philippines, after Typhoon Haiyan, one of the most powerful and destructive storms in history, struck the country.


"It should be the duty of all people of goodwill to assist in relief efforts. We are one human family," said Shira Loewenberg, director of AJC's Asia Pacific Institute. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families."

A team of IsraAID medical, trauma, and relief professionals has been dispatched to the Philippines.

"Our tradition commands us to respond generously and compassionately to those who suffer a natural disaster," said Loewenberg.

AJC has partnered with IsraAID humanitarian relief missions in a number of crises, including Sri Lanka after the unprecedented South Asian tsunami in 2004, Peru following a devastating earthquake in 2007, the Philippines after a deadly tropical storm in 2009, and Haiti following the massive earthquake in 2010.
