What is Humanitarian aid?
Humanitarian aid is intended to assist those impacted by armed conflict and natural catastrophes in order to preserve lives, lessen suffering, and uphold human dignity in times of need.
The concept of humanitarian action has evolved over time and can take many forms. It is linked to a group of fundamental principles as stated in United Nations (UN) Resolution 46/182 (1991): humanity (providing aid wherever it is needed and doing so in a way that upholds each person’s rights and dignity); impartiality (providing aid without bias and in response to need); help without taking sides in disputes of a political, religious, or ideological nature, or acting neutrally (the act of providing assistance without engaging in conflicts); and autonomy (the provision of assistance autonomous from the political, economic, military or other objectives of other actors).
Roads of Success practices in response to the humanitarian principles:
- Roads of Success offers humanitarian aid based on needs to those affected by natural and man-made disasters, paying special attention to the most vulnerable victims. No matter of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, country, or political affiliation, aid is distributed impartially to the afflicted communities. Emergency intervention sectors covered by the Roads of Success humanitarian aid include food and nutrition, housing, healthcare, water and sanitation, and education.
- Assisting refugees: The Roads of Success provide aid to those who have been uprooted by the conflict. The organization is in charge of directing and coordinating global efforts to safeguard refugees and provide solutions to their difficulties.
