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.
Currently we work in the area of humanitarian aid in the Kurdish governed parts of North Syria (Rojava). Help is virtually non-existent although inhabitants suffer under the consequences of the continuing war, the attacks of the IS and the international humanitarian and economic embargo. At present we build a mobile hospital, train paramedics and physiotherapist, try to establish an Tele-medicine program and provide material for technical rescue. Our ideas and projects aim to contribute to fight the very reasons to flee.
Our engagement in the region is shortly summarized in this video.

As there is no comprehensive aid from the EU we expand our focus, adding the movement of refugees towards the European borders to our concerns. Started in Lesbos, we now support the sea rescue mission in the central Mediterranean Sea. Together with lifeboat GmbH we patrolling the lybian coast on our vessel 'Minden', an ex-DZgRS Search-and-Rescue ship. Here you can watch a video about our SAR-mission.
