About Us


Israel Relief Aid, R.A. is an Israeli Registered non-profit organization (Amuta) (Reg. #580 605 087) with a team of experts with experience in humanitarian aid for over 20 years, supplying humanitarian aid stations all over Israel — for new immigrants, the homeless, unemployed and single-parent families.  We also supply to hospitals, children’s welfare villages, IDF nonprofits, Holocaust Survivor centers, facilities for the disabled and other institutions. Our motto: to show love to the Israeli nation not in word or speech alone, but in action. 

Our managerial-logistics professionals import  aid containers utilizing innovative and cost effective methods – keeping running costs lower than normal with a funding rate of 75% towards the aid itself.  Supplementing this is monthly aid events of food boxes/bags and/or meals to the 25% of Israel living under the poverty line.

  • Our team in Israel has a working relationship with government infrastructure and 20+ years of experience in importing 520 large shipping containers!
  • Our team in Netherlands has its own logistics service, multiple warehouses, and experience in humanitarian projects in Europe/regional crisis areas (Ukraine and others) shipping containers of aid to over 40 countries, supplying loads of aid to the Red Cross and working in the field since 1993 — sending out tens of thousands of aid shipments.

Our directors have, amongst them, decades-long experience in humanitarian aid in Eastern Europe, are experienced organization leaders and are ardent supporters of Israel.
