CADUS international disaster response


CADUS is a non-profit, independent, international emergency response organization from Berlin. In our projects, we provide rapid, needs-oriented emergency aid and promote long-term capacity building on the ground. Thereby we follow humanitarian principles and rely on local cooperation. We work together on creative solutions and share them publicly. Our commitment focuses on four areas:

Emergency response

We provide emergency medical and technical support. Even where no one else helps.


In our missions, we cooperate locally and build capacity together.


We develop creative solutions for needs-oriented support according to the open-source principle.


We discuss humanitarian aid (self-)critically and ask about the causes of crises.

Deployment regions

We are internationally active with our projects. Our work is currently focused on Ukraine and Gaza. But we have also been deployed in Northeast-Syria, Iraq, the Mediterranean and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
