Urgent cases

No one can predict what is going to happen tomorrow.

Even though we try to be prepared for various scenarios, life writes its own stories. That is why our spectrum of activities includes not only planned actions but also emergency assistance. Experience has shown the latter is often required when least expected.

In the winter we had to provide heating oil to houses in a mountain village cut off from its supply.

We had to act quickly as people were freezing in tents and makeshift houses that they had not been able to fully reconstruct yet. We also delivered food to a village which was suffering from supply shortages. In both cases support we received from local volunteers was invaluable. Their immediate mobilization ensured the entire action’s success.

During our stay in Iraq in May 2018, a fire broke out in one of the camps with tragic consequences.

Three tents burned down. A 17-year-old girl died in one of them. Three families lost their entire meager possessions and were left with no roof overhead. We drew up a cost estimate and transferred funds for the construction of brick houses for the fire victims. The work was done in just a few days. In that case, we worked under time pressure as well to ensure the affected families could carry on with their lives.

Our organization’s independence enables us to take immediate decisions, hence in such situations we act on the spot. What counts first and foremost is the well-being of the people we are helping.
