The emergency grant will provide on-the-ground support to people in need within the humanitarian crisis.

Theatrical non-profit Broadway Cares has distributed two $200,000 emergency grants to organizations working in Gaza and across the Middle East to aid those in need due to the humanitarian crisis.

The grants are going to Doctors of the World, which works to provide emergency and long-term medical care to vulnerable people; and International Rescue Committee, which helps communities in humanitarian crises survive, recover, and rebuild.

"As those in Gaza continue to face seemingly endless devastation and loss, their rippling heartbreak resonates across the world and in our corner in the theatre district," says Broadway Cares Executive Director Tom Viola in a statement. "Broadway Cares is responding with action and compassion, providing food, water, fuel, quality health care, essential medicines, and supplies to all caught in the tragedy of this conflict and so many families facing catastrophe."

Broadway Cares is one of the nation’s leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations. By drawing upon the talents, resources, and generosity of the American theatre community, since 1988 Broadway Cares has raised more than $300 million for essential services for people with HIV/AIDS and other critical illnesses across the United States.
