Emergency Aid: fast, practical and unbureaucratic
The first project of the Kleine Hilfsaktion e.V. was a so-called emergency project, an ‘emergency’ because people needed help now! Emergency projects are for poor people who have found themselves in a life-threatening situation in a developing country. These are situations where people require immediate assistance, and decision-making needs to be straightforward and fast, with no long meetings. Handling delicate cases like this requires experience, a pragmatic approach and short decision-making paths.

Climate change or otherwise, severe weather events are increasing in the world. When powerful storms come, they often bring strong winds and intense flooding. Makeshift homes, shanties and poorly constructed shelters can be damaged and destroyed, with the poorest households often being the hardest hit. When low-income households lose their homes, they rarely have the required resources to rebuild, frequently leaving them homeless. And sometimes, families cannot fix or keep their homes functional, often due to extreme poverty and difficult living situations, like supporting dependent elders, small children, and people with disabilities. In cases like these, we offer assistance, providing the resources needed to build simple structures, and putting roofs over people’s heads.
Costs: € 100,- to € 1.000,-
