CADUS is a charitable and independent humanitarian aid organisation. We initiate innovative projects, focussing on needs-based capacity building to help people help themselves. CADUS develops and implements strategic and technical solutions for emergency response by activating our wider networks, and in cooperation with local partners of communities affected by disaster and conflict. Innovations are affordable, repairable, and open source. Direct help in the form of humanitarian aid is offered to affected communities based on their needs. Along with offering direct support, CADUS assesses structural problems and uses its public voice to address these challenges in an effort to make humanitarian aid sustainable and to promote global solidarity.
