About Us

About Us
Reaching the forgotten. Saving lives. Strengthening communities.

OUR VALUES

From the rain-swept coasts of Madagascar to the icy mountains of Afghanistan, from crowded displacement camps in South Sudan to our headquarters in Switzerland, Medair's internationally recruited staff are united throughout the world by a set of common values.

Integrity

We strive to live out our values and principles consistently at every level of the organisation, and in every location – from the remotest team to the international headquarters. Our desire is that as we work together in teams, our attitudes, words, and actions will be true to Medair’s vision and character.

Hope

We seek to bring hope to people devastated by crisis and caught in apparently hopeless situations.  Together with the communities we serve, we strive to make sustainable improvements and increase their capacity to build a better future.

Compassion

We desire to relieve human suffering in times of crisis, disaster, and conflict. We seek out people who are the most vulnerable, come alongside them and offer practical support through relief and rehabilitation initiatives.  

Accountability

We are committed to employ best practices in our management and operations, pursuing excellence in all we do. We make ourselves accountable to our supporters, our staff, and those we serve, and seek input from them to help us improve our activities and procedures.

Dignity

We believe that each person has been made in God’s image and is therefore uniquely valuable and worthy of the highest respect. Consequently, we reach out to all those in need, irrespective of their race, gender, religion, age, or nationality. Wherever possible we personalise our assistance, taking individual needs and circumstances into account, and respecting the dignity and independence of the people we serve.

Faith

We are motivated to care for those who suffer because we follow Jesus Christ, who taught us to love God and to care for those in need. Our faith inspires us to give our best in all circumstances. By faith we pray for wisdom when facing difficult decisions, and for courage to live and work in demanding and often dangerous situations.
