Issues we work with

Mike DuBose / UMNS

We act for peace, especially by assisting the most conflict and disaster affected communities to be safe. This means empowering communities to prevent conflict, protect refugees and reduce poverty. A safe community is one in which all members can live in safety, dignity and are able to realise their rights.

  • Prevent further conflict

    We believe that only delivering humanitarian aid in conflict situations is not sufficient. Act for Peace aims to break the cycle of violence. Through our project partners, we work with local communities to address the root causes of ongoing conflict.
