Help for people in need

Quick and effective

Whether after a natural disaster or in humanitarian emergencies: Most aid missions occur without prior notice. The extent of a disaster can hardly be estimated at the beginning. How great is the need? How strong does our team need to be? What do people need most urgently - and how can we organize the aid strategically and most effectively? Experienced emergency aid workers with knowledge of the respective country, language and culture are then needed. They know the country and its people best and are in a position to initiate initial emergency aid measures.

Help provides emergency aid worldwide. We can draw on over 40 years of experience in international humanitarian aid and have a large network of local partner organizations. Together, we can respond quickly to the needs of those affected.

How does Help provide emergency aid?

Providing effective help together

In the event of a disaster, Help responds immediately. In close cooperation with our alliance partners from Aktion Deutschland Hilft and local partner organizations, we coordinate our aid missions to find the most effective measures.

We provide those affected with food, water, hygiene articles and tools as required - effectively and unbureaucratically: the focus is on people. Help acts quickly and efficiently in acute emergency situations.

In most cases, our emergency aid turns into long-term relief measures. In line with our principle of helping people to help themselves, we empower them to actively improve their living conditions. We accompany them until they are able to provide for themselves again.
