About CADUS

CADUS is a non-profit and independent aid organisation with headquarters in Berlin and regional offices in Northern Iraq and Northeast Syria. In our projects we focus on innovation, sustainability, and the development of needs-based local capacities. We work where hardly any other aid organisations are active or where they have withdrawn. Cooperation with local partners is particularly important to us. Together we work on solutions; innovations are made available to the public.

You can find out more about our work on Twitter, Facebook, Betterplace, Youtube, Instagram and here:
