Innovation in Aid to Israel

Israel Relief Aid is a Registered, Israeli Non-Profit Corporation supplying humanitarian aid stations by using fast flow technology and innovative techniques throughout the nation of Israel.  Our operational costs are not high like those of many larger organizations because we are not pouring donor money into a warehouse or office building. This results in dramatically lower overhead, increased aid, and faster dispersal turnaround time to recipients.

No overhead is required for expensive Israeli warehouse rent, property taxes, required insurance, truck purchases, repairs, truck insurance, forklift purchases, warehouse employees/payroll/equipment, etc!

By choosing to forego posh office space, expensive automobiles, mass advertising, exorbitant salaries and properties costing hundreds of thousands of dollars per year, we are able to simply focus on aiding Israelis in need!

See our methodology below:  the process from start to finish. Then read our latest reports for detailed stories and photos of those we have helped we month.

Our Goal: Help Israelis in Poverty – Cost Effectively

The Problem:  The multitude of aid organizations trying to help Israel use donor funds to fund their expensive buildings, so they have not been able to meet the needs of increasing Israelis living under the poverty line.

More than 25% of all Israelis and nearly one-third of Israeli children live below the official poverty line according to the country’s National Insurance Institute which released the grim statistics during the last week of 2021.

The Challenge: To import aid into the country, distribute with zero to very low cost, and keep running costs super low, to lower the percentage of Israelis living under the poverty line.

The Method:  Containers of donated aid are loaded in countries around the world by international charity shippers. These charities have access to quantities of freely-donated quality aid and ship regularly to countries in need.

Loading container of Aid for Israel
  • Quality clothing & household goods for new immigrants
  • Hygienic supplies for all the government hospitals, paramedics and clinics
  • Baby supplies and clothing for organizations helping new mothers in poverty
  • Furniture and clothing for orphanages and welfare-placed children/youth
  • School supplies for kindergartens and schools for disabled children
Shipping Container

Each aid container of donated goods costs only around $9,000 to be shipped, cleared through customs and distributed in Israel!  Yet each container’s contents is 20-40 times that amount worth of aid!

These shipping containers (containing an average of 10 tons of aid each) are brought by ship, unloaded to the Israeli port and go through import clearing to receive clearance to leave the port. Flatbed trucks load the container and truck it to up to three stops in Israel.  Or the truck unloads at our Logistics Center near Ben Gurion Airport and recipient organizations come to pick up!

Fast Flow Technology. It’s Simple, Cost-Effective, and to the Point

Most all contributions of donors are directly used to ship/clear/truck containers of aid instead of for immense overhead costs for expensive Israeli buildings/forklift/shelving/warehouse staff/insurance/security/etc. and all that goes with them, and our donors are greatly blessed in this.

Who Are We Aiding? Our Israeli management has an extensive infrastructure of government/ welfare and civic, non-profit organizations capable of distributing at a much faster level in order to help more Israelis that are really in need. Final recipients are Holocaust Survivors, homeless, unemployed, immigrants, disabled, single-parent families, etc.

Our method is to bring in aid for Holocaust Survivors, widows, the homeless, the disabled, new immigrants, single parent families, orphanages, those living under the poverty line and institutions all over the Land by a variety of cost-saving logistic and direct transport methods that save thousands of dollars to distribute each container: Israel Relief Aid Fast Flow Technology!
