- A new story: We worked on a new story for Dorcas in 2016, with various departments and stakeholders giving their input.
With the help of the “Pope for Ukraine” charity fund, Dorcas Ukraine will provide financial support to 2.500 people who are heavily impacted by the war in Eastern Ukraine.
Last week, the second phase of the Joint Response in Somalia started. This aid programme consists of Dutch organisations and is funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Dorcas joined in August and during this second phase of the programme we will closely work together with Medair.
EU leaders must live up to their commitments to European values in responding to migration and stop copying xenophobic populist recipes, more than 160 NGOs said today in a joint statement. The organizations are calling for strong leadership to uphold the rights and values that have been the founding principles of the European Union for 60 years.
130 million people need relief aid to survive. The Dutch government has made 45 million euro available for relief organisations so that they can continue to provide relief in Yemen, Iraq, South Sudan, Syria and other countries.
Dorcas is part of the DRA (Dutch Relief Alliance), founded in 2015, is a very unique cooperation between fourteen relief organisations. An external evaluation done by the ‘Overseas Development Institute – Humanitarian Policy Group’ concluded that the DRA is an effective and efficient mechanism within the international field of relief aid.
