ACTED is an association of French international solidarity which aims to support vulnerable populations around the world.
Since 1993, the international solidarity association ACTED has been responding to the humanitarian needs of populations in crisis situations and to respect for their dignity, while promoting and implementing opportunities for sustainable development by investing in the potential of the region. Man. Independent, private and non-profit, the NGO ACTED (statute association law 1901) works in the respect of a strict political and religious impartiality, according to the principles of non-discrimination and transparency, and the values of responsibility, impact, entrepreneurship, and inspiration. ACTED works to respond to emergencies and build resilience of people to crisis situations, promote inclusive and sustainable growth, and strengthen civil society, good governance and social cohesion. ACTED aims to support vulnerable populations around the world and to support them in building a better future by providing a response tailored to specific needs. Our teams help people affected by crises through a global and local approach, multidisciplinary and adapted to each context. By providing the link between Emergency, Rehabilitation and Development, ACTED's teams guarantee the usefulness and sustainability of the interventions carried out in times of crisis, because only long-term support - staying on site after the emergency and in involving communities - helps break the cycle of poverty and support people on the road to sustainable development. ACTED is now present on 4 continents and our teams of 4,700 people are involved in 37 countries around the world to deal with emergencies, to support rehabilitation projects and support development dynamics. With its experience in close proximity to the situations and needs of vulnerable communities around the world, ACTED contributes to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, advocating for an integrated approach, co-construction, and a global partnership. Associated with numerous French, European and international partners, ACTED is committed to promoting and developing innovative approaches and initiatives, humanitarian principles, new solidarities and convergences between private operators.

AidWEST was founded during the first few days following the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti. In catastrophes such as this, not only are thousands killed but many more are severely injured, orphaned, separated and traumatized. In the early weeks following such disasters, large organizations slowly gear up to send medicines, doctors and nurses. But in Haiti, and in other recent disasters in impoverished places, the staggering numbers of casualties far exceeded the capabilities of the initial influx of professionals. Doctors and nurses are simply overwhelmed by the needs tens of thousands of patients have for labor-intensive procedures.
The purpose for our corporation is to perform charitable activities within the meaning of Internal Revenue Code Section 501 (c)(3) and the Chapter 496, F.S.

Building Walls for Rebuilding Lives!
The need for a roof and deliver as quickly as possible in operation care centers, schools and public buildings are of absolute importance after a disaster.
Since 2001, through its action programs around the world the Emergency Architects Foundation (UAF) has demonstrated that assistance to people in distress can not be limited only to providing food and care: rebuilding lives broken, but also allow the poor to find decent living conditions as soon as possible.
Its purpose is to provide advice and assistance to populations affected by natural disasters, technological or human, and more generally, in this context, to provide assistance to anyone in a state of physical or mental distress in France and abroad. It also participates in discussions conducted after any disaster, and can, by his interest in cultural heritage, intervene under heritage protection missions.
Representations of Emergency Architects in Canada (Montreal) and Switzerland (Geneva) were created to extend the action network.

We stand together. For dignity. For equality. For justice.
Everyone is equal in the sight of God. Yet we live in a world where poverty still persists.
Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of their dignity and lets injustice thrive. But together we have the power to transform lives.
For over 70 years, we’ve been standing with the poorest of our neighbors. We work in 37 countries, with people of all faiths and none, to stand up for dignity, equality, and justice.
