50 Years of Humanitarian Aid


The German Federal Foreign Office has been providing humanitarian aid on the basis of the humanitarian principles of humanity, independence, neutrality and impartiality for 50 years now.

Germany is the second largest bilateral donor in the world, playing an important role as a driver of innovation.

The Foreign Office does not implement aid measures on its own, but builds on cooperation and collaboration with experienced and professional aid organisations and partners, including the UN, the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement and humanitarian NGOs.
