MISSION
People affected by natural disasters or humanitarian crises have the right to solidarity and help! Together they save lives and give people in need a perspective for a self-determined and free life again.

NON-PARTISAN EMGERNCY AID FOR MAJOR HUMANITIARIAN DISASTERS
They help people affected by natural disasters and humanitarian crises regardless of their nationality, ethnic origin, gender, religion, membership of a particular social group or political convictions. The only decisive factor for their actions is the alleviation of people's suffering.

THE HUMANITARIAN MISSION IS THE CENTRE OF ATTENTION
Action Germany helps is socially neutral and abstains from political, ethnic or religious disputes. When their humanitarian mission demands it, they raise their voices for those in need. The focus of their work is humanitarian aid. They help to alleviate and prevent human suffering. They inform the public about the situation of people in crisis and disaster areas.

ACTING IN A NETWORK
They promote cooperation between Alliance organisations in the disaster area as well as cooperation at all levels in Germany. They are committed to the principle of cooperation within the Alliance and with other actors because they believe that joint aid is faster and more efficient aid. By joining forces, they want to effectively alleviate the suffering of those affected in the event of a disaster.

HELPING FASTER TOGETHER
They combine social forces in Germany for humanitarian aid at home and abroad. Comprehensive joint emergency relief by the affiliated alliance organisations requires the cooperation of many actors from all sectors of society. The donations and relief actions of every single citizen, the support of politics, associations, federations and municipalities and, last but not least, the commitment of small and large companies that believe in the principle of solidarity are what make the aid possible in the first place.
