At the heart of our intervention

Humanitarian principles

Humanitarian principles are central to the actions of FSD.


Our primary goal is to save lives and relieve suffering wherever it occurs.


We implement our actions based on needs, giving priority to the most urgent, without discrimination.


We do not take sides in armed conflicts or political or ideological controversies in a State.


As much as possible, we carry out our actions independently of any political, economic or military agenda.

To guarantee minimal impact on our planet, we develop our projects in accordance with our environmental policy. We strive to reduce our carbon emissions and follow the 3Rs strategy (reduce, reuse, recycle).

Maintaining a close link
with the communities

We have a continuing dialogue with local communities and adapt our activities according to the contexts and cultures in which we operate. This is to optimise our efforts to meet the communities’ needs.

Training of local staff

Creating local opportunities

In each of our projects, we recruit and train our staff locally to promote employment, especially in post-conflict areas, where the economy has been devastated.
