We have had several inquiries from staff and volunteers regarding any support Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas may offer in response to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. At this time Catholic Charities does not have any direct fund or program to support international disaster relief. However, one of our community partners, Heart to Heart International, specializes in this work. Please review this message below for information on their efforts and ways to donate.
Heart to Heart International urgently needs your support to respond to the health and medical needs of the Israeli and Palestinian people during this crisis.
Surprise attacks by Hamas on Israel on October 7 have resulted in a devastating wave of intense fighting and counterattacks across the region. In a time of such heart-wrenching humanitarian crisis, Heart to Heart International remains committed to its mission to provide essential assistance to those affected.
We are actively coordinating with our longstanding partners in the region to deliver critical medicines, medical supplies and hygiene kits to people impacted by this tragedy. The aid will be distributed to displaced families in bomb shelters and to healthcare organizations caring for the injured.
Our dedication to this mission is guided by the humanitarian principles of humanity, impartiality, neutrality and independence. We firmly believe that health is a vital human right that must be preserved and protected.
However, we cannot do this alone. Together, we can make a difference and provide critical medical and humanitarian assistance to the affected communities. Your generous donation will help provide essential care to those who need it most.
Please donate today to support our critical relief efforts.
