Agonising images fill our television screens, as we learn of the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Ukraine. As other Jewish communities open their hearts and their homes to refugees from war torn Ukraine and provide them with shelter, food and relief, we as South African Jewry also want to assist in alleviating the suffering.

We have identified 5 organisations that we work with that are providing relief to those trapped in Ukraine and the refugees who are fleeing.

The international charities have credit card options available so that you can pay directly using your local credit card.

No amount is too small to make a difference! All donations will be used in assisting those in need in Ukraine through these 5 organisations:

1. The Joint Distribution Committee (JDC):

2. The World Jewish Congress (WJC) Ukraine Humanitarian Relief Effort:

3. IsraAID:


5. Chabad:
