Who We Are

We are primarily a group of friends called to work together in support of people affected by poverty and injustice. Our main focus is on refugees and asylum seekers: individuals, families and children who fled their homes due to war, persecution or disaster. We are formally registered and regulated as a nonprofit humanitarian organisation with a global scope of action, both in Germany (Frankfurt District Court and Finanzamt – Germany’s Finance Authority) and in Greece (Mytilene District Court).

Our Values

Our values are based on the principles of the Christian Faith and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

SOLIDARITY

Having compassion and a genuine concern for aiding those in need.

AUTONOMY

Functioning free from external control (religious/political groups).

Equality

Affirming equal rights to a life with dignity for people of all backgrounds.

TRANSPARENCY

Being accountable and transparent in all areas and levels of our work.

Partnership

Working with like-minded individuals, groups, churches & organisations.

MODESTY

Working with humility and valuing the skills within the community.

Meet the Team

All our workers either serve voluntarily or raise their personal support among family, friends and organisations in order to serve with All4Aid. This model enables us to use money from public donations directly towards our projects.
