Cadus

CADUS is a charitable and independent aid organisation. We initiate innovative and sustainable projects focussing on need-based capacity building to help people help themselves. Our team develops projects based on their variegated professional experiences and competences within different lines of work. The interdisciplinary and European wide cooperation with several partners and the consideration of social, sustainable and ecological aspects is understood as a matter of course. Effective teamwork, interdisciplinary and critical reflection of established NGO-practice, as well as the early involvement of the local communities are central values for CADUS.

Their invisibility will increase, no big solidarity campaign was set up on Facebook and no large media echo was heard.

…and suddenly Bela B. entered the room..But one after the other…..

It all started with an idea. During our medical training in Syria two years ago we set up the plan to actively oppose the almost complete collapse of the medical system- the idea of a mobile hospital for Syria and Northern Iraq was born. Due to expert knowledge, creative ideas and a bit of Mac Gyver, our first mobile medical unit is ready and can start its journey to the places, where it is needed badly; we just have to overcome the last hurdle: bureaucracy. As soon as the last stamp is set the trip begins.
