Our humanitarian actions are governed by international humanitarian law, human rights and refugee laws and several other relevant principles. The three main principles that aare particularly important and strongly guide our humanitarian actions include;
Humanity: Human suffering must be addressed wherever it is found, with particular attention to the most vulnerable population such as children, women, the disabled and the elderly. The dignity and rights of all the affected should be respected and protected.
Neutrality: Humanitarian assistance must be provided without engaging in hostilities or taking sides in controversies over political, religious or ideological nature.
Impartiality: Humanitarian assistance must be provided without discriminating by ethnic, origin, gender, nationality, political affiliation, race or religion. Humanitarian relief must be guided solely by needs and the rights of the people affected by emergencies
