Humanitarian protection is about improving safety, well-being and dignity for crisis-affected populations. Protection refers not only to what we do, but also the way we do it. These principles include:
Do not cause further harm or create new risk of harm
Nondiscriminatory access to assistance and services
Identify the most vulnerable and their specific needs
Safe and dignified access to basic services
Community participation and empowerment
