As employees of Johanniter International Assistance we are committed to the principles of Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe. Our assistance is aimed at all people regardless of their religion, nationality and culture and is not governed by any political interests.
In the course of our international humanitarian work, we pledge ourselves to responsible and cooperative action. We stand up for our decisions and endeavour to fulfil our duties to the best of our abilities. Respect and integrity define the cooperative relationship with our public and private donors, employees, and project partners.
We hold different cultures and people in high regard and strive to act primarily in accordance with the needs of those receiving our aid.
We concentrate our efforts on our core competences, which are primary health care, medical disaster relief and prevention and the rehabilitation of people with disabilities. We set ourselves realistic targets by which our work can be evaluated.
Our main concern is to improve the living conditions of people in need in the long run. Therefore we deploy our resources with foresight, taking into account the social, economic and ecological consequences.
We are committed to accountability and transparency towards our donors and partners. Decision-making processes and structures are being constantly reviewed and improved. Uniform quality standards and regular audits ensure our professionalism.
