Mission Statement

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 endeavor 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.

It is our goal to enable people to survive in dignity and reduce their vulnerability and that of their communities – throughout humanitarian crises and
immediately after a disaster. To strengthen people’s resilience, we place an emphasis on providing healthcare, improving water, sanitation and hygiene, combating malnutrition and securing livelihoods.

We set ourselves realistic objectives against which our activities can be measured and we use our resources with foresight. We pay equal attention to the social, economic and environmental consequences of our work.

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.
