HIAS Around the World
HIAS provides protection and assistance to some of the most vulnerable refugee populations around the world. Depending on location, these services can include trauma counseling, art therapy, legal advice, and humanitarian assistance. We work closely with a number of partners, including the US government, the government of Israel, UN agencies, and a host of non-governmental organizations.
We provide services to Jewish immigrants and refugees and others in need -- without regard to their religion, nationality, or ethnic background. The Torah tells us that we must help the stranger among us. This, and our core belief that we must "repair the world" (tikkun olam, in Hebrew), are the driving principles behind our global work.
