- arvato Systems resolves to donate to major relief coalition
- Aktion Deutschland Hilft is a partnership uniting a number of major relief organizations
Aktion Deutschland Hilft - Germany's Relief Coalition - is an alliance of German relief organizations providing rapid and effective aid in major catastrophes and emergency situations abroad. Participating organizations pool their years of humanitarian aid experience abroad, so as to be able to provide the best possible aid. In exceptional cases, Aktion Deutschland Hilft can also act within Germany. What unites this group of independent campaigners is the goal of bringing together the skills and expertise that each organization has built up over the years to provide better and more efficient aid measures to those in need. Working together in this way avoids gaps as well as replication of aid.
Lowering Costs and Transforming Donations into Aid
The administrative structures and capacities of the member organizations help to reduce costs and to ensure that the largest possible proportion of donations collected is converted into direct aid. Distribution of donated money is organized according to the abilities and capacity of the participating organizations.
“With this donation we, as a company, are making our own contribution towards helping some of the millions of people affected by humanitarian crises and natural disasters regain their strength and carry on”, adds Matthias Mierisch, CEO of arvato Systems.
