Cordaid’s more than a century old mission is as relevant today as it was during World War I, when we started by taking care of Belgian refugees in the Netherlands: we strive to end poverty and exclusion in the world’s most fragile and conflict-affected areas.
Where fundamental human needs go unsatisfied we engage local communities and partners to rebuild trust, resilience and self-reliance. Our professionals provide humanitarian assistance and create opportunities to improve security and justice, healthcare and education and to stimulate inclusive economic growth.
Supported by 288,000 private donors in the Netherlands and by our worldwide partner network, we have the leverage and implementing power to tackle poverty and exclusion in the most challenging settings.
