Ukraine: CADUS-Team is deployed!

Since the beginning of the war, our teams have been supporting reconstruction efforts, providing rescue vehicles, materials and training, and medical care to the population in Ukraine.

Solidarity with all refugees and those affected by war!
Stop combat actions - protect human lives!

CADUS is a non-profit and independent aid organization with headquarters in Berlin. In our projects we focus on innovation, sustainability, and the development of needs-based local capacities. We work where hardly any other international aid organizations are active or where they have withdrawn.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.

Each one teach one - medical trainings in Ukraine

Shortly after our first missions in Ukraine, the need for medical training in particular became obvious on the ground. In addition to the numerous medical novices from the population, who suddenly had to and wanted to treat injured people in times of war, specialists also asked for support in this also medically challenging situation. With eight courses and over 1500 participants:inside in over 11 cities in Ukraine, we have been able to establish a professional training program.


Escalation Israel - Gaza*

CADUS reports readiness to WHO: Following the brutal Hamas attack on Israel and the dramatic deterioration of the humanitarian situation in Gaza as a result of the Israeli counter-offensive, WHO has requested the operational readiness of humanitarian organizations through the Emergency Medical Team (EMT) mechanism. CADUS has responded positively to this request.

Humanity at one of the toughest places in the world

On June 30, 2023, the time has come: CADUS will leave Camp Al Hol, where we have built up a field hospital and supported the camp's internal rescue control center, forever. But we know that the Field Hospital will be in good hands: our staff members on the ground have founded their own organization and will take over the management. It's time to look back on four challenging years in Northeast Syria, during which we have struggled a lot, but also learned a lot.
