Austrian Red Cross

The Austrian Red Cross is part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, a global humanitarian network with 80 million members, staff and volunteers that assists those in need due to conflict and disasters as well as those facing health or social problems.

The Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is independent, neutral and impartial. With its national societies in 191 countries it provides humanitarian aid (disaster response and recovery) and development to vulnerable people around the world.

Caritas Austria

Caritas Austria is part of the Caritas International Confederation with over 160 members who are working at the grassroots in almost every country of the world. Caritas is the helping hand of the Catholic Church – reaching out to the poor, vulnerable and excluded, regardless of race, gender or religion. Caritas’ principles of dignity, justice, solidarity and stewardship give essential guidance for its members. The Caritas confederation has been responding to emergencies for more than 60 years. Within their international work, Caritas Austria supports more than 620 projects worldwide – from humanitarian aid operations, development programmes to policy and advocating for a better world for everyone.

Médecins Sans Frontières

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare. MSF offers assistance to people based on need, irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation.

Our actions are guided by medical ethics and the principles of neutrality and impartiality.

MSF medical teams often witness violence and neglect in the course of their work, largely in regions that receive scant international attention. At times, MSF may speak out publicly in an effort to bring a forgotten crisis to public attention, to alert the public to abuses occurring beyond the headlines, to criticise the inadequacies of the aid system, or to challenge the diversion of humanitarian aid for political interests.

SOS Children’s Villages

SOS Children’s Villages International is the umbrella organisation of the federation of national SOS Children’s Villages associations.

With the invaluable support of our partners, donors and sponsors we help children without parental care and families in difficult living conditions in 134 countries and territories, through services in childcare, education and healthcare.

As a global non-governmental social development organisation we respect all religions and cultures, and we work in countries and communities where our mission can contribute to development. We work in the spirit of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and we promote these rights around the world.
