Transparency and accountability

Providing humanitarian assistance and development aid is a privilege. Setting and maintaining high standards of performance, for ourselves as well as for the organisations we work with, is essential to living up to the responsibility that comes with this privilege.

These standards are part and parcel of all our contractual relationships, be it with organisations in the field, suppliers, or other parties.  

We like to ensure compliance through a culture of accountability. This means we are transparent about mutual rights and obligations and the criteria we use when selecting partners, projects, and suppliers. Our policies are imposed on everyone we work with.

Annual reports and accounts

Cordaid continues to make a positive impact around the world. Many of you participated in this mission and for that, we are very grateful. With great pride, we would like to share what we have achieved with our partners worldwide.

Let’s have a look at a few examples: 17.2 million people benefitted from our healthcare interventions; we delivered humanitarian aid to 1.1 million people and we assisted 1 million people in improving their livelihoods.

As of 2021, Cordaid and ICCO have become one organisation. We made progress in integrating both organisations, while further exploring how to combine networks, knowledge, and infrastructure to increase our impact in addressing today’s and tomorrow’s global challenges. Below, you will also find the annual reports of ICCO.

We appreciate your support. Let’s make each year better than the last.

We are in the process of finalising the Annual Report and the Annual Accounts for 2022.
