Mission, Values and Goals of humedica
We are an international community of professional and voluntary staff, donors and sponsors, who offer their means, abilities and gifts to serve people who are in need due to (natural or man-made) disasters or due to living conditions below poverty line.
We understand ourselves as mediator between those who are in need on the one hand and people and institutions willing to help on the other. Hence, we turn attention to situations of human misery, mobilize resources and render effective and efficient aid.
While working for people in need we adhere also to these basic principles:
1. We regard humedica as an organisation that believes in God’s friendly providence and trusts in His guidance. Our institutional acting and behaviour shall be orientated towards this positive relationship to God.
2. It is important to us, that - being a Christian organisation - we offer Christians as well as non-Christians a platform to help people in need.
3. Due to the love of the neighbour - regardless whether he is far away or close by – we oblige ourselves to render our best possible services.
4. We consider authenticity in terms of actions and communication as particularly valuable.
5. Volunteer services are seen as an essential asset of our ministry.
6. We regard our courage and spontaneity for rapid aid as an indispensable value.
7. We want to appropriately respond to the basic needs of people in emergency situations and still carry on to consider also the special needs of the individual.
8. The “Code of Conduct of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and Non-governmental Organisations at disasters” forms the normative foundation of all our humanitarian actions.
