Solidarity with people in need does not end at national borders. Therefore, Volkshilfe Solidarität is providing humanitarian aid since 1951 and is active in development cooperation – together with other organizations from the solidar network and local civil society organizations.
During crises and catastrophes Volkshilfe provides quick, unbureaucratic and efficient support, particularly to vulnerable groups. Besides emergency aid, projects linking relief rehabilitation and development, as well as disaster risk management interventions are supported.
Our projects are based on partnership principles with local organizations and contribute to sustainable development using a “helping you help yourself” approach. Volkshilfe is active in education, gender equality, social services as well as support to particularly marginalized groups
