    Goals / Remit

    SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL is a network of 19 European aid- and welfare organisations in 18 countries.

    Almost three million members, 145,000 volunteers and 45,000 full-time employees form the basis of SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL and the network in the different organisations and countries.

    The members contribute their extensive experience in the fields of social services, rescue services, first-aid training and humanitarian aid overseas to the common work. They work together in disaster prevention and the development of international civil protection systems.

    SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL serves to coordinate the member's joint activities, to develop new cross-border partnerships and represents the interests of its members towards the European Union. In particular with regard to questions of emergency care the member organisations also practically support the development of a united Europe.
