About Us

Medair is an international humanitarian organization that provides emergency relief and recovery services to communities affected by natural disasters, conflicts, or other crises. Founded in 1989 and based in Switzerland, Medair's mission is to save lives and alleviate suffering in some of the most remote and difficult-to-reach places on earth.

Medair focuses on providing essential services, such as healthcare, nutrition, water, sanitation, hygiene, and shelter, to vulnerable populations. The organization works closely with local communities, governments, and other humanitarian actors to ensure an effective and coordinated response to emergencies.

Medair's work is guided by its core values of integrity, accountability, hope, compassion, and dignity. As a faith-based organization, Medair is also inspired by Christian values to serve people in need, regardless of their race, religion, or nationality.

In addition to emergency response, Medair is involved in longer-term recovery projects to help communities rebuild and become more resilient to future crises. These efforts include disaster risk reduction, capacity building, and sustainable development initiatives.
