Mission

Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe provides humanitarian aid worldwide. It supports people who have fallen victim of natural disasters, war and displacement and who are not able to cope on their own in the emergency situation they find themselves in. It is an effort to help people in great need – worldwide, regardless of their colour, religion and nationality.

In its activities Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe is committed to the basic principles of humanitarian aid as laid down in the Code of Conduct of the Red Cross and Red Crescent and of non-governmental aid organisations in the context of emergency assistance.

Risk assessment and early warning systems (HFA 2)

Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe supports its partners to develop risk understanding using participatory vulnerability & capacity assessments (PVCA), technical assessment and studies, and to disseminate findings to stakeholders.

Reducing underlying risk factors (HFA 4)
