About Us


We may be the only hope for the world’s largest stateless people

Our Story

Kurdish Red Crescent was founded in 1993 in Bochum, Germany. Since then the charity, with its 190 volunteers spread across Germany, has grown with each day and become a beacon of hope for people in crisis. Kurdish Red Crescent runs to the aid of vulnerable people under all conditions and is the only aid organization of Kurdistan. Kurdish Red Crescent has endeavoured to help, aid and reach people with its brochure. Furthermore, as we value transparency, all our work has been made public.  

Our Mission

Kurdish Red Crescent’s purpose is to carry out its activities in light of universal values and principles, with the aim to bring assistance free from discrimination in its national and international capacity to alleviate human suffering in Kurdistan and wherever it may be found, with precedence to  

  1. War zones and areas experiencing the effects of war
  2. Disaster Areas
  3. Areas of poverty in all countries and regions.
Our Vision

Kurdish Red Crescent, through compassion and readiness, has made it a principle to work on the basis of transparency and meticulousness, to ensure funds reach families in need safely. This vision ensures the importance of cooperation of all branches of society and values every contribution to help people in need and alleviate their suffering.
