THE PROBLEM –
HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE IN LIFE THREATENING CIRCUMSTANCES

The safety of medical personnel deployed in crisis and conflict situations has deteriorated significantly over the last decade. Attacks on health care workers and hospitals are a growing concern in the world of armed conflicts and have a devastating impact on the availability of care for the sick and wounded.

It threatens people in need, when they require it most!

THE SOLUTION:
SWISSCROSS HELPS TO PROTECT!

Swisscross is a civilian independent non-profit security organisation with the purpose on focusing on the protection of the weakest victims of war: the wounded and sick.

Providing community supported unarmed safety & security solutions and abiding the humanitarian principles of independent, neutral and impartial medical care.

Swisscross has the task of helping the community to protect medical personnel and their facilities in armed conflict and other crises until the government or any other legitimate International organisation is willing and able to resume the responsibility.
