ACCOUNTABILITY & ETHICAL GOVERNANCE

GOOD HUMANITARIAN PRACTICE 

Good humanitarian Practice is our original governing body of ethical work .  It is a body of work that not only permeates and drives every step of our humanitarian activities but also represents the minimum guiding standards all of our NGO partners must subscribe to. 

Preamble

 

Whereas recognition of the right to life is an inherent, equal and inalienable right of all members of the human family.

 

Whereas disasters whether naturally occurring or caused by man will continue to create situations for the need for international humanitarian relief interventions.

 

Whereas it is essential to promote the protection of international relations by which human persons everywhere in the world can contribute to relieving the pain and suffering of their fellow human beings anywhere in the world.

 

Whereas a common understanding of these rights is pivotal for the protection of every human person’s right to receive humanitarian assistance.
