The Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund Deutschland (ASB) is a German aid and welfare organisation with more than 300 branches at national, regional, district and municipal level all over Germany.
More than 1.3 million members provide a broad social basis for our organisation and more than 20,000 employees as well as over 17,000 volunteers form part of the ASB ensuring a high level of quality in areas such as rescue services, civil protection and social services. Since its foundation in 1888, ASB has acted as a politically and denominationally independent association ensuring a high level of continuity and reliability. ASB’s Foreign Aid Department provides both direct emergency relief to people hit by human-made or natural disasters and longer-term rehabilitation measures designed to promote recovery and to rapidly help restore the livelihoods of refugees, internally displaced persons and other vulnerable groups. ASB currently has a portfolio of more than 100 relief, rehabilitation, development and inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) projects runs own offices in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Greece, Haiti, Indonesia, Iraq, Kosovo, Nicaragua, Niger, Serbia and Ukraine.
ASB started its operations in Haiti immediately after the catastrophic earthquake in 2010, supporting the affected population through an emergency program, including reconstruction and rehabilitation of destroyed houses in Petit Goâve and Grand Goâve. Humanitarian aid was provided as well after hurricane Matthew (2016), the corona pandemic (2020) and the recent earthquake in the south department (2021), with special emphasis on inclusive access to clean water through water filter systems.
From 2013 to 2020, ASB implemented transitional aid projects with financial support from the German Government. It aimed at strengthening disaster resilience of the rural population. Since then, all projects have been implemented by local partner organizations and follow a multi-dimensional approach to resilience building. Project measures comprise areas such as food security, WASH, disaster risk reduction, climate crisis adaptation and social inclusion with particular focus on the empowerment of persons with disabilities and their organizations. Geographically, the projects are implemented in several municipalities of the Departments Sud, Ouest, Nord and Centre.
During project implementation, ASB contributes to capacity building of partner organizations, target groups and stakeholders, and proper coordination among the involved actors. For technical support, project coordination and program development, ASB runs an office in Petit Goâve.
