Humanitarian aid

We seek to provide emergency and ad hoc assistance during an exceptional crisis or natural disaster.



The military invasion of Ukraine has triggered a severe humanitarian crisis. Since the start of the Russian offensive, millions of Ukrainians have been forced to leave their homes and flee urban combat zones and bombings. Some seek refuge in other parts of the country whereas others prefer to leave.

“Terre des hommes” Lausanne

Support towards two mobile clinics to help Ukrainian refugees in Moldova by providing psychosocial and medical support as well as basic needs items.


The COVID-19 pandemic has worsened the situation of thousands of people, especially those who were already in a precarious situation. These people – poorly protected self-employed people, poorly paid employees, homeless or undocumented people, etc. – were until then often invisible, as they flew under the radar of the authorities and did not appear in federal statistics, in particular because they did not claim their rights to social benefits. The situation is alarming: one in six people lives on the poverty line in Switzerland.

“Mère Sofia” Foundation

Extension of the Soup Kitchen’s lunchtime distribution hours and distribution of more than 23,000 meals, to be eaten in or taken away, for people in need in Lausanne.

Southeast Asia

The economic crisis triggered by COVID-19 is taking a toll on families in the region of Southeast Asia. Job losses and large-scale wage cuts have coincided with the loss of remittances from foreign workers and a drop in tourism. UNICEF forecasts show that over the next six months, up to 120 million more children could be pushed into poverty and food insecurity, joining the 240 million already living in poverty.

Friends International

Helping to distribute 49,000 meals and 5,000 basic needs baskets to homeless children and to low-income families in Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar.
