The focus of our activities is on social work, education and health as well as agricultural and village development (more about these subjects under “Sectors” and “Target Groups”). In order not to create new dependencies or not to maintain old ones we offer “help for self-help”.

The funds we receive (voluntary donations from our generous supporters) are converted into grants for all types of transport: this may be a bicycle, a moped, a trail bike, a 4wd ambulance, a pickup, an outboard motor – it is the people on the ground who know what best suits their terrain.
10. Action aid
We’re an international organization, working with over 15 million people in 45 countries for a world free from poverty and injustice. Our head office is in Johannesburg. We’re the only international development organization with our head office based in Africa. We also have offices right across Asia, the Americas and Europe. We believe the people whose lives our work affects should decide how we’re run. And that’s what makes us different. We help people use their own power to fight poverty and injustice. Because that’s how real change happens – for families, for communities, for whole societies.
MISEREOR supports the weakest members of society: the poor, the sick, the hungry and the disadvantaged. It is of no importance whether those in need of help are men or women, what religious beliefs they hold or where they come from. To love one’s neighbour is a basic attitude of Christian life, and MISEREOR’s vocation is to translate this attitude into concrete action; the poor are our sisters and brothers, who have a right to a life of dignity. MISEREOR supports them in realising it. The organisation does not pursue any ends other than the promotion of development. The mandate given to MISEREOR by the German Bishops rules out the promotion of pastoral or missionary measures.
‘Misereor super turbam – I have compassion on the crowd’ (Mk 8.2)
These words of Jesus contained in the Bible gave the organisation its name. Compassion for people in need has remained the defining underlying motivation and characteristic of MISEREOR’s activities to this day.
