    Goals / Remit

    The SAMARITAN INTERNATIONAL (SAM.I.) network was founded on 11 August 1994.
    Today, SAM.I. consists of 20 member organisations working in social services, rescue services, first-aid training, civil protection and humanitarian aid. Over three million individual members, 150,000 volunteers and 45,000 full-time employees in 19 countries form the basis of the SAM.I. network.

    SAM.I. serves to coordinate the activities among its members, to develop new cross-border partnerships and to represent 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 to a united Europe.
