JDC's Work in Haiti Featured on CBS Special Broadcast
A recent national CBS broadcast on the work that religious groups are doing in Haiti features the work of JDC, including interviews with CEO Steven Schwager and JDC Haiti Representative Gideon Herscher. The reports focuses on JDC's newly dedicated rehabilitation clinic and prosthetic workshop developed together with Israel's Magen David Adom and Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer Hospital as well as the Haitian Red Cross and the HUEH (l'Hôpital de l'Université d'Etat d'Haïti). The modernized facilities are the first of their kind in Haiti.
JDC's non-sectarian disaster relief programs are funded by special appeals of the Jewish Federations of North America and tens of thousands of individual donors to JDC.
