Middle East

The civil war in Syria and the offensives of the terrorist militia IS have exacerbated the already tense situation in the Middle East. Millions of people are on the run and in need of humanitarian aid.

Together with national and international partner organisations, we provide humanitarian aid in the Middle East for people fleeing from armed conflicts and violence.
