About Us

Our Mission, Vision & Values

Relief International is dedicated to reducing human suffering by delivering life-saving aid in the most fragile settings. We are non-political and non-sectarian in our mission. Over the past 60 years, we have worked in more than 50 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Middle East to serve the needs of the most vulnerable, neglected groups – particularly women, children, those affected by natural disasters and civil conflicts, and the poor.

Our mission, vision and values help us to achieve a positive impact in communities and maintain a healthy organizational culture. All those associated with Relief International – from employees, seconded employees and indirect staff members to interns, volunteers, officers, and members of our Boards of Directors – agree to promote these goals and values. We also agree to uphold Relief International’s Code of Conduct.
