The American semiconductor manufacturer Nvidia, together with its staff, has contributed $15 million to Israeli non-profits that aid the civilians impacted by Israel's conflict with Hamas.

Under a unique initiative launched to aid those impacted by the war, Nvidia received donations totaling $5 million from thousands of workers in over 30 countries, which the firm matched and doubled to $10 million.

"We are proud to see such broad support from Nvidia families in Israel and around the world, and are grateful for their prayers and hope for the return of our colleague Avinatan Or, and the other hostages from Hamas’s captivity," said Gideon Rosenberg, Nvidia's deputy general counsel.

Or, 30, works as an engineer at Nvidia and was hired in April 2022, according on his LinkedIn profile. On October 7, Noa Argamani, and about 240 other people were taken prisoner by Hamas at the Nova music festival; some of the other people have subsequently been set free.

Nvidia reported that it had given thousands of hot meals from its Yokneam office cafeteria and supplied hundreds of laptops to families who had been evacuated from the north and south of Israel

Asor Fund (JGive), American Friends of Magen David Adom, Doctors Without Borders, Friends of United Hatzalah, IsraAID (US) Global Humanitarian Assistance, Jewish Agency for Israel, World Central Kitchen, and Zaka are just a few of the organizations to which Nvidia's workers have decided to donate.
