Zero Hunger by 2030

We fight against global hunger and for sustainable food security. We envision a world in which all people can exercise their right to a self-determined life in dignity and justice, free from hunger and poverty.

Our goal: Improving living conditions in a sustainable way.

In Turkey, Syria and Lebanon our goal is to improve the living conditions of the most vulnerable populations affected by the war in Syria through the delivery of emergency and development assistance as well as the strengthening of people’s resilience. One of our strategic objectives is to strengthen humanitarian aid in the region and link it with development.

Our principle: Helping people to help themselves.

Our actions are based on the principles of equality, human rights and self-determination. The people with whom we work are partners striving towards social change. We treat them with respect, solidarity and compassion.

Transparency and reliability are the cornerstones of our work – with regards to our partners, the public, donors and public sponsors. Our work is shaped by creativity and by a constant willingness to learn and innovate.
