Intersos is an international humanitarian organisation, founded in Italy in 1992, which operates on the front-line in contexts of war, violence, extreme poverty, natural or man-made disasters. Over the past 30 years, Intersos’ workers have been bringing aid to populations affected by humanitarian crises, with a particular focus on protecting the most vulnerable people, providing medical care, distributing basic necessities and offering emergency shelter.
Why Donate to Intersos?
“I am human, and nothing of that which is human is alien to me” is the key principle underpinning all Intersos’ values and interventions. It underlines the importance of the human being: the principles of equality, justice, peace, solidarity and the duty of every human being to help all those in need or distress, without influence of any kind.
Donors’ contributions allow Intersos to plan ahead to react promptly to emergencies, in order to reach the most vulnerable people in critical humanitarian crises, both in Italy and worldwide.
INTERSOS strongly believes in the values of neutrality, independence, solidarity and impartiality.
