According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), there are an estimated 11.7 million refugees, 38 million internally displaced persons and 400,000 returnees in the world. Humanitarian aid helps thousands of these people regain control of their lives and their communities.
Sustainable development is an approach that prioritizes simultaneous actions, mainly in the areas of health, education, food security and governance, with a view to countering the causes of poverty in a targeted community.
Giving people the opportunity to stand in full solidarity with underprivileged populations by sharing their expertise and know-how is at the heart of our cooperant-sending initiatives. Volunteer cooperation mandates are designed to develop a better access to specialized health care and to help beneficiaries.
